Tips From former Smokers - Suzy's Story

Refuse to lose a loved one or friend to the devastating effects of tobacco use. Tobacco use is highly addictive as well as the single most preventable cause of death and disease.

Tobacco use affects Georgia families. Approximately 700,000 male adults and 600,000 female adults (aged 18 years and older) currently smoke cigarettes. Tobacco use also affects the lives of Georgia teens. Among high school students approximately 72,000 smoke cigarettes and 62,000 smoke cigars or cigarillos. Tobacco use also affects babies. Smoking during pregnancy can cause premature births, sudden infant death (SIDs) and stillbirths as well as changes in fetal brain and nervous system development.
