This website was created to inform the public,
mainly adolescents, about the dangers of smoking and how to quit smoking,
and stay off the habit. It is a well-known fact that tobacco is harmful
to a person`s health, but we provide the information about the specific
damage that occurs. There are also social issues surrounding the problem
of smoking that we address in depth on this website.
Tobacco is a deadly plant that annually kills around
3 million people worldwide. Half of these deaths take place during
a person`s middle age (35-69) and each of these victims will have
lost around 25 years of a non-smoker's life expectancy. For everyone,
especially adolescents, there is life to be lived, why lose 25 years
of it to such a despicable habit. If you start smoking regularly at
the age of 18, you might as well consider yourself 43, because you
are going to miss out on such a large chunk of your life.
There is help however, and this is the website
that hopes to take regular smokers off their habit, and stop non-smokers
from ever beginning. The incentive for quitting smoking is that there
is clear clinical evidence that cessation of tobacco use before the
onset of cancer or other diseases avoids most if not all the later
risk of developing such a disease.
