Effective video, but I want to share some shocking news over here and I believe it would works more effectively. Here is the summary of my recent research:

  • In the United States, cigarette smoking accounts for approximately 440,000 deaths a year. Globally, 5 million souls are lost to tobacco use annually, and if current trends continue, that number is expected to increase to 8 million by the year 2030.
  • If no one smoked, cancer deaths in the U.S. would decrease by one-third.
  • Lung cancer is largely a smoker's disease; 90% of men and 80% of women who succumb to lung cancer smoked.
  • COPD-related deaths are also primarily caused by smoking, with 90% of these deaths traced back to cigarettes.
  • Tobacco use is responsible for more deaths each year in the U.S. than all of the followingcombined:
  • HIV
  • Murder
  • Suicide
  • Motor vehicle injuries
  • Alcohol use
  • Illegal drug use
Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable death in the world today. Were it not for the addiction to nicotine, no one would willingly inhale any of these toxins into their body and put their health at such great risk.


If you are still smoking, please look through the resources below. They will provide not only a map of how to put smoking behind you for good, they will inspire you to get started now.
