Goal: 30,000 Progress: 4,083
Sponsored by: The Breast Cancer Site

Almost 50,000 women in the United States die each year due to tobacco-related cancer. That's close to 10,000 more deaths due to cigarette use than due to breast cancer. Today, frequent tobacco use remains the most common reason for cancer in women.

Perhaps the most alarming aspect of these statistics is that 100% of these tragic deaths can be avoided if women simply practice healthy habits when it comes to smoking.

Here are some tips that will help you learn about the dangers of smoking, the psychological science behind quitting, and how to help someone you love kick the habit for good.

  • Dependence on tobacco and nicotine is chemically wired within your brain. While you DO have the willpower to quit, recognize that when you're craving a cigarette, there's a chemical process occurring.
  • Set realistic goals.
  • Know you are going to experience mood swings and emotional reactions that may seem out of the ordinary.
  • Recognize what triggers you to smoke.
  • Educate your children on the dangers of smoking as early as possible!
  • Support your friends who are trying to quit! You can help save your loved ones' lives!

Sign the petition below pledging to take care of yourself and all of the women in your life by getting educated on the statistics of tobacco deaths and by quitting smoking for good!

Aug 13, 2018 (Name not displayed) I am battling my third cancer and the last has metastasized to my bones. I fight for all who are affected by cancer and support research to eliminate cancer. How can anyone smoke, knowing it's been confirmed to cause cancer?
