Messages for the individual smoker l.jpg

Messages for the individual smoker

  • Those killed in middle age lose many years

  • Stopping smoking works

    • Even in early middle age, those who stop (before they have lung cancer or some other fatal disease) avoid most of their risk of being killed by tobacco

    • Stopping before middle age works even better

•The risk is big: about half are killed
