Do you value the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness?  People should stop smoking  because it may kill you.  Addiction is the modern slavery.  You and your family will suffer just for a thing that you could control. To stop smoking doesn’t mean the end of the world instead its saving a another life.  Set yourself free and QUIT NOW.

Cigarettes contribute to more than 1 in 4 cancer deaths in the U.S. The rate is highest among men in southern states where smoking is more common and tobacco control policies are less strict. The American Cancer Society study found the highest rate among men in Arkansas, where 40 percent of cancer deaths were linked to cigarette smoking. Kentucky had the highest rate among women — 29 percent. The lowest rates were in Utah, where 22 percent of cancer deaths in men and 11 percent in women were linked with smoking.

We can’t help all the people but we could help the ones that we know.
