Tobacco has been a part of the society for the past centuries and up to now it still exists. It’s like an ecstatic activity that makes it hard to give up. For some, smoking is one of the habits that others can’t quit. They say that a cigarette helps them tolerate the cold weather by giving body warmth, that’s why they can’t just easily give it up despite their knowledge that smoking can cause complications to the health.
Why People Can’t Quit Smoking
In 2011, World Health Organization (WHO) statistical data shows that 10 million people worldwide died because of smoking. The major cause of their death is “lung cancer” along with the other health problems such as bronchitis, heart diseases, tuberculosis, asthma and many more.
With this alarming mortality rate, many groups from different nations organized an anti-smoking campaign, though they know that it’s a tough crusade. Therefore, they make it sure to make a good mission and vision for their anti-smoking campaign, some even showing a picture of a man who have a decayed body organs caused by smoking. But for as the year’s progresses, the campaign seems none effective at all due to a continuous increasing number of death rates. With this fact, they bring the campaign to the next level by making more anti- smoking applications during World- Anti Tobacco Day last May 31. This type of application is a non- aggressive, instead a friendly anti-smoking campaign that aims to entice the smokers to try as a substitute for smoking.
