Whether we use directly or indirectly, tobacco use affects us all. Each year six million people lose their lives from direct tobacco use and 600,000 deaths are caused by exposure to second-hand smoke. Unless we take action, the annual death toll could rise to 8 million by 2030, according to the World Health Organization.
At WFS, we want to help you and your loved ones breathe freely. We know that for most tobacco users, it takes an average of seven tries to “stay quit” and that’s OK! If you want assistance with the tobacco cessation programs we support, check out the following benefits:
