    According to the American Cancer Society, “smoking is the most preventable cause of death in our society,” and nearly “half of all Americans who keep smoking will die because of the habit."

    In fact, smoking cigarettes accounts for more American deaths than alcohol, car accidents, suicide, AIDS, homicide, and illegal drugs combined.

    If you use tobacco products, please stop! Encourage everyone you know to avoid this deadly and costly habit TODAY!

    Smoking seems to be a big feature, but chewing tobacco is very bad also. Some baseball players had parts of jaws removed due to cancer.

    That a lot more movies have characters who smoke in them. I though it was just me or the movie was a "period" piece, but no, here's everyone puffing away like wood stoves! I'd like to see THIS trend end quickly!
