Tobacco Facts

When your eyes first view this site, they can't help but go to the right hand side to the Poster Child.  The Poster Child, British Columbia's anti-tobacco ambassador for the past seven years, shows in graphic detail the damaging effects of tobacco.  It's a jarring image, one which would have an impact on any student.

Just as the images here are direct and to the point, so is the message; "We're not here to tell you what to THINK or what to do. We'll just give you the facts about tobacco. The stats, the gross pictures, the people, ALL REAL. We don't need to exaggerate what tobacco does to people. Because the loss, the damage and the pain are all real too. But browse this site and see for yourself, then MAKE UP YOUR OWN MIND."

This no-holds barred attitude of giving the facts, just the facts on tobacco, extends to each of  the site links.  Even the Games&More link reinforces the ills of tobacco with links to titles such as the Puke Page with the disclaimer "You are one click away from one of the grossest pages on this web site", and to the Extreme Smoking Makeover page which also features some gross pictures.  In addition to the pictures, links to the Killer Stats, Puzzle, In The Know, True and False, Play It Clean, Burn Your Money and Butt Out pages also reinforce the message verbally.

This site from the British Columbia Ministry of Health Services should be a mandatory stop for any student who thinks that smoking is cool.   If they don't get the message from the graphic pictures and statistics that tobacco kills, the story of Barb Tarbox, a courageous 41-year-old mother who lost her battle with lung cancer caused by smoking. will make an impact on even the most hardened of students.

If you want to quit smoking, you can use smoking cessation aids, or perhaps sign up for addiction treatment for executives and professionals sessions to help you out.
