No amount of secondhand smoke is safe!

Secondhand smoke is involuntarily inhaled by smokers and is responsible for the death of over 50,000 Americans each year.

If you smoke, please think about the harms you could do to your loved ones before lighting up around them.

If you don’t smoke, ask people who smoke around you if they could wait to lite up until after you’re not around them anymore.
