October Tips of the Month: Quick Facts on Smoking
  • Use your head. Smoking is responsible for nearly 450,000 deaths each year.

  • Stay active. Exercising and participating in sports is nearly impossible if you smoke cigarettes.

  • Stay informed. Young smokers are 100 times more likely to smoke pot and become addicted to other illicit substances such as heroin and cocaine.

  • Be aware of the risks. Smoking can lead to many physical problems, including emphysema, heart disease, stroke, and cancer.

  • Keep your edge. Smoking makes you smell bad, gives you bad breath, makes your fingers turn yellow, and gives you premature wrinkles.

  • Play it safe. Experimenting with smoking could lead to full-fledged addiction and a lifetime of trying to quit.

  • Do the smart thing. Smoking puts your health and the health of those around you at risk.

  • Get with the program. Smoking isn't "in" anymore.

  • Find ways to reduce anxiety. Smoking may actually contribute to your state of agitation.

  • Be a real friend. If you know someone who smokes, be part of the solution. Urge your friend to get help and quit.
