I Want to Avoid Tobacco and Second-Hand Exposure

We know that nicotine is addictive.  Once a person is addicted to nicotine – supplied by a cigarette, cigar, e-cigarette, or other delivery method – it’s challenging to break away from that addiction and stop using the substance.  The most effective way to avoid using tobacco and other nicotine products is to not start using them.  Avoiding peer pressure or reacting to stress can be challenging… but can be done!
The best way to avoid secondhand exposure to smoke and other nicotine-related toxins from smoking is to avoid places where tobacco/nicotine products can be used.  In other words, try to be in tobacco-free environments as much as possible.
There’s information to help you and those you care about, on both of these strategies.
