This year’s World No Tobacco Day 2021 is themed Commit to quit and we help you be healthy by quitting tobacco and related products. We are celebrating to inform the public on the dangers of using tobacco, the business practices of tobacco companies and how international organizations are fighting the tobacco epidemic.
This also includes how people around the world can claim their right to health and healthy living and to protect our future generations while focusing on ways to live healthy.
This year’s World No Tobacco Day theme is ‘Commit to Quit’, and WHO has launched a year-long campaign to support at least 100 million people who are trying to give up tobacco through communities of quitters.
Tobacco use impacts your social life
You want to be a good example for your kids, friends and loved ones. Tobacco use affects social interaction and relationships negatively. Quitting means there are no restrictions on where you can go – you can mingle socially, without feeling isolated, as you do with.
Tobacco use threatens the health of those around you
Over 1 million people die every year because of second-hand smoke. Second-hand smoke can cause lung cancer, heart disease, stroke, and other diseases. Second-hand smoke contains hundreds of chemicals known to be toxic or carcinogenic, including formaldehyde, benzene, vinyl chloride, arsenic ammonia and
hydrogen cyanide. You will be more productive by quitting tobacco – you won’t have to keep stopping what you are doing to have a smoke.
