World No Tobacco Day 2023: It is celebrated on May 31 of each year around the world. Its goal is to spread awareness about the health risks of excessive smoking and tobacco use.
It goes without saying that smoking and tobacco use is a major contributing factor in millions of deaths around the world. Cigarette smoking is responsible for more than 480,000 deaths each year in the United States, including more than 41,000 deaths as a result of secondhand smoke exposure. This is about one in five deaths a year, or 1,300 deaths a day. On average, smokers die 10 years earlier than non-smokers, says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The World No Tobacco Day special event aims to spread awareness of the health risks of smoking and tobacco use across the country. It urges people to quit smoking in order to live a long and healthy life. It’s definitely hard to quit once you’ve become addicted, but it’s surely not impossible. Here are some inspirational quotes that can motivate you to quit smoking and lead a healthier and happier life with your loved ones.
