Reasons to quit smoking

There are lots of good reasons to stop smoking. Smoking is bad for you - 1 in every 2 smokers worldwide will die of a tobacco-related disease.

The health benefits of quitting start right away. You’ll also be protecting your family from secondhand smoke. Smoking won’t dictate your daily routine, and it’ll be easier to keep your home and car clean.
