It’s Nation Non Smoking Week January 20-26, 2019.
The safest we can be when it comes to substances, including tobacco, is to not use them. We also know that not everyone can, or wants to make that choice all the time. When it comes to substances there can be varying levels of use ranging from not using at all to someone who is using to the point where it is a problem for them. Someone has to decide for themselves if their use is problematic or not.
When it comes to smoking there is some built in risk including lung damage or addiction. If you are concerned about your use it’s important to find support. Teen Clinics are great places to get support. Smokers’ Helpline is a free, confidential service operated by the Canadian Cancer Society offering support and information about quitting smoking and tobacco use.
