I have overlook so much events recently even though I have marked them in my Google Calendar. 2 days ago at May 31st, there was a World No Tobacco Day, an annual event organized by WHO
WHY DO WE NEED TO CAMPAIGN FOR A TOTAL BAN ON TOBACCO ADVERTISING, PROMOTION AND SPONSORSHIP?
• Because about half the children of the world live in countries that do not ban free distribution of tobacco products to them.
• Because only total and comprehensive bans can be effective in reducing tobacco consumption.
• Because national-level studies before and after advertising bans found a decline in tobacco consumption of up to 16%.
• Because partial bans have little or no impact on demand since advertising can be switched to alternative media.
For a note, I was a hardcore smoker few years back before I met Mai my wife. She is so persist and persuasive in effort to put a dot in my smoking habit. Alhamdulilah, I stopped smoking (not 100%) after our engagement and 100% clean after I married.
How about you?? Show you support to this campaign!!
