May 31 st World ‘No-Tobacco Day’

Smoking

“Smoking helps you lose weight … one lung at a time!”

 

Every year, on May 31, WHO and partners around the world celebrate World No-Tobacco  Day, dedicated to highlight the health risks associated with the consumption of tobacco and promote effective policies to reduce consumption.

The tobacco epidemic is one of the biggest public health threats the world has ever faced, killing more than 7 million people a year. More than 6 million of those deaths are the result of direct tobacco use while around 890 000 are the result of non-smokers being exposed to second-hand smoke.

Smoking

Thousands stop smoking every year-   by dying

As you notice,all the three person are enjoying smoking,and on the left side one can see the notice stuck ( local language ), ironically telling that the area is prohibited from smoking and offenders will be punished !!

Time for some humor

“I know that every cigarette I smoke takes five minutes off my life, but it takes ten minutes to smoke it… that’s a five-minute net gain!”    Ed Byrne

“Giving up smoking is the easiest thing in the world.I know because I’ve done it thousands of times”      Mark Twain

“Whenever I think of quit smoking…..I need a cigarette to
think …..!!!”   quote-flickr,com

  1. cant help noticing the differences between the guys:
    the one on the left seems to be smoking because he is tense or worried.
    middle one is smoking like he has earned it, both in terms of time and money
    right one seems to be lacking time, didnt even take off the helmet, glasses and needs to respond to WP comments, he has somehow squeezed the smoke in between
    no wonder the notice is their least concern, not that it shouldnt be.
