I wish we could do something useful with tobacco – Like making fertilizer out of it

Paul Dudley White

We see it every day, people standing outside in the rain huddled over a burning stick of foul tobacco. The stench gets into their clothes, stains their teeth, and permeates the air around them. Every moment of every day is spent waiting for that next nicotine break, their obsession and taste for disgusting habits only being eclipsed by those who insist that coffee is a beverage. No Tobacco Day is dedicated to those who are determined to leave this foul substance behind them, and encourage others to do so as well.

History of No Tobacco Day

No Tobacco Day was established with the goal of raising awareness of the dangers of this habit, and the thousands of lives it costs every year. Tobacco used to be considered an innocuous little treat for the civilized man, and even went so far as to be touted as healthy by business and (doubtless) paid off doctors to help promote it for use. A hundred years and millions of deaths later it’s become undeniable that tobacco use is one of the primary killers of people all over the world.

So if you’re one of the millions of people who light up a cigarette, step out for a cancer stick, or have a smoke, then let No Tobacco Day be your chance for a freer, healthier future. The average smoker spends around $4000 a year on cigarettes, imagine what you could do with that kind of money! That’s enough for a nice cruise in the Caribbean, a powerful new gaming computer, or an entire wardrobe of amazing clothes! No Tobbaco Day can be your step towards economic freedom as well!

How to celebrate No Tobacco Day

Start off by setting aside your cigarettes, and starting the day out with a fresh new perspective that’s tobacco free. Ok, we know that isn’t realistic, so at least start No Tobacco Day by counting the number of cigarettes you smoke in a day, and setting yourself a goal for a gradual reduction in cigarettes until you’re absolutely tobacco free on the next No Tobacco Day! Over the following year you’ll start to feel healthier, have more energy, get sick less, and have more money in your pocket! Wouldn’t that be the greatest celebration ever?

Consider it a first step to kicking that nasty tobacco habit.
