Give Up Smoking This World No Tobacco Day

This yearly event promotes effective tobacco control policies, increases awareness, and inspires action. Quitmates program is just one way that we can help those wanting to quit smoking.

Throughout the world, tobacco smoking continues to be the dominant factor in deaths that could have been avoided. According to the World Health Organisation, each year, millions of people die from diseases brought on by smoking, including cancer, lung disorders, and cardiovascular issues. Quitting cigarettes will immediately bring on benefit such as lowering a drop-in heart rate, your taste and smell improving and your risk of health complications dropping significantly. Furthermore, second-hand smoke seriously endangers the health of vulnerable populations. The financial impact of tobacco-related medical expenses and lost productivity only emphasises the importance of taking urgent action.
