National No Smoking Day

For those who smoke, or for those who love someone who smokes, National No Smoking Day is a chance to talk about the impact smoking has on health, quality of life, and even the duration of a person’s life.

National No Smoking Day not only raises awareness of the dangers of smoking, but also spotlights resources that can help people who want to quit. Today is not about judgement – it’s about support!
