Category: Tips from Former Smokers
New Hampshire supports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Education Campaign: Tips from Former Smokers. The campaign features real people suffering as a result of smoking and exposure to secondhand smoke. Their compelling stories send a powerful message: Quit smoking now. Or better yet — don’t start. CDC is building on the success of the Tips campaign by launching a new round of advertisements to continue to raise awareness of the negative health effects caused by smoking, encourage smokers to quit, and encourage nonsmokers to protect themselves and their families from exposure to secondhand smoke. Tips features health conditions around pregnancy, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease [COPD], asthma in adults, and smoking-related complications in a person with diabetes and HIV, as well as oral diseases and cancer.
