Family and friends

Your smoking affects the people you care about. When you quit smoking, you will increase your chances of living longer and have more energy to do things with your family and friends.

Your family and friends will be glad you quit. Listen to Tito’s story about the reasons that made him quit.

Quitting can also make your family and friends healthier. Secondhand smoke from your lit cigarette can hurt your children and the people around you. When you quit, you won’t be exposing the people you care about to the dangers of secondhand smoke.
