The Great American Smoke Out was Thursday, Nov. 16. Smokers who took advantage of this event tried to quit smoking for one day, then they were encouraged to quit for good. Each day, about 3,000 teens smoke their first cigarette. Of every 100,000 15-year-old smokers, tobacco will kill about 20,000 before the age of 70. More than 90 percent of adult smokers started when they were teens. Each year, 1,700 college students ages 18 to 24 die from alcohol-related injuries. Smoking also increases the risk for lung, mouth, larynx, throat, esophagus, bladder, kidney, pancreas, cervix and stomach cancers and some forms of leukemia, lung diseases such as pneumonia and emphysema, heart attacks, strokes, blood vessel diseases and blindness.
