The aim of ‘No Smoking Day’ is to raise awareness about the dangers of smoking.
The day also attempts to spotlight resources available to help people decide to try and quit.
Cigarettes are highly addictive and harmful to the person who smokes then as well as the people around them. Toxins in cigarettes cause many different forms of cancer.
It is important to acknowledge that it may be a personal choice to smoke or not; when one person smokes near another person or even a pet, the second-hand smoke is just as dangerous to them.
Research shows that with support, smokers are more likely to succeed in their quit attempt.
