World No Tobacco Day : Share Your ♥ for Tobacco-Free Living!

May 31, 2016

World No Tobacco Day : Share Your  for Tobacco-Free Living!


World No Tobacco Day takes place every year on May 31st, highlighting the health risks associated with tobacco use and advocating for effective policies to reduce tobacco consumption.

New Brunswick has made significant gains in the fight against tobacco, and we hope to see smoking rates in the province, which are among the highest in Canada, start to decline. While stricter laws restricting smoking in a variety of public spaces help to model healthy smoke-free behaviours and denormalize tobacco use, the anti-tobacco movement also gets stronger with every single New Brunswicker who takes a stand against tobacco by committing to maintain a tobacco-free lifestyle or making the effort to quit smoking. World No Tobacco Day offers a great opportunity to reach out to all New Brunswickers and ask them to take a moment and think about the benefits of living tobacco-free.

Celebrate World No Tobacco Day! Share a tweet on Twitter telling us why you choose to live tobacco-free or what you love best about being tobacco-free using the hashtag #SmokeFreeNB between May 23 and May 31, 2016 and you could win a $50 prize!

Each participant can submit as many entries as they wish throughout the contest period. The winner will be contacted and announced by the NBATC before June 5, 2016.
