The Doctors: Negative Effects Of Smoking Cigarettes
The CDC’s Tips Campaign features real stories of people affected by smoking, both firsthand and secondhand. The reality is that many smokers want to quit, but feel like they just can’t. There are numerous reasons why you shouldn’t smoke, beginning with the fact that it can kill you! Smoking also causes premature aging and can hurt those around you. Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of preventable death. Each year, 480,000 people die because of smoking, which is more than AIDS, alcohol, car accidents, illegal drugs, murders, and suicides combined.
