Declare Your Independence from Tobacco


As we celebrate our independence as a nation, we want you to declare your independence from tobacco. Instead of smoking, vaping or chewing, we encourage you to spend this holiday working on your fitness, spending time with your family and enjoying the fireworks.   

Research studies prove that tobacco use is a threat to the development of our social, physical and environmental surroundings. The leading cause of preventable death and disease in the United States, the CDC estimates that cigarette smoking and secondhand smoke cause 480,000 deaths each year; that’s 20%!  It also causes healthcare costs of more than $300 billion each year in smoking-related illness. 

You can find tips, articles and tools to help you get started on our website. Take back your freedom; declare independence from tobacco!
