Why Should You Quit Smoking?

Contributed by Katie Sack on 02/20/2014 

Did you know that tobacco kills more people in the U.S per year than alcohol, cocaine, crack, heroin, homicide, suicide, car accidents, fire and AIDS combined?!

Heart Disease, stroke, lung cancer, cancer of the lip, mouth, throat, larynx, bladder, pancreases, stomach, cervix, kidney, emphysema, and many more.

It hurts your children, your spouse, your friends, your pets. Everyone is susceptible to second hand smoke and its dangerous health effects.
