Just quit

Last week (May 31) countries marked World No Tobacco Day and the campaign theme this year was about protecting children from tobacco industry interference. Smoking increases the risk of at least 20 different types of cancers as well as lung, kidney, and heart diseases. According to the WHO, over eight million people die every year due to tobacco use related illnesses.

One problem is that even when people are aware of these harmful effects, they do not know how to quit. It is important to know that you can quit at any age and it will be beneficial. Know that quitting is possible and that you can take control of your health today, if you decide.
