'Help tobacco users to quit'

Print Article

The CDC has brought back its tips from former smokers ads to help convince tobacco users to quit. Over the course of the last seven years that this campaign has run, it has helped millions of tobacco users to quit their addiction. Throughout the seven years of this campaign it has not lost any of its power!

These types of ads not only encourage tobacco users to quit but also help educate youth about the dangers of smoking and assisting them in talking to someone they love about quitting. These are powerful ads and are important to the health of our communities and are important to continue.

I have lost many family members and loved ones to tobacco and wish they could have seen these ads. It may have given me more loving years with them. Annually tobacco takes over 7,000 Wisconsin lives and these powerful ads may help us in reducing this toll.

Free help is available here in Wisconsin by calling the WI Tobacco Quit Line at 1-800-QUIT NOW. You also can learn more about local efforts by going to rcy2y.com or like us on Facebook at Youth2Youth.
