The US Surgeon General has stated, "Smoking cessation (stopping smoking) represents the single most important step that smokers can take to enhance the length and quality of their lives.

Numerous studies have been done on effect of smoking on health and a person life span. What they found was that people who smoked had a higher incidence of heart disease, strokes and lung cancer. Smoking while pregnant caused health issues for the fetus and children growing up with smokers were equally affected.

Statistical studies show the following:
  •  Smoking has been identified as the single most preventable cause of death and disease in the United States.
  •  Cigarettes currently cause approximately 20% of all deaths in the U.S.
  •  According to the American Heart Association in the United States, an estimated 25.1 million men (23.4 percent) and 20.9 million women (18.5 percent) are smokers
  •  According to WHO (World Health Organization)
  •  About a third of the male adult global population smokes.
  •  Smoking related-diseases kill one in 10 adults globally, or cause four million deaths. By 2030, if current trends continue, smoking will kill one in six people.
  •  Every eight seconds, someone dies from tobacco use.
