A snapshot of the global smoking epidemic and why it cannot be ignored [Infographic]

Tobacco use places a significant health and economic burden on individuals and societies around the world. Smoking is linked to serious illnesses including heart disease, stroke, lung disease and some cancers, and kills nearly six million people each year, making tobacco use the leading preventable cause of premature death worldwide. While the health benefits of quitting smoking are substantial, many find it difficult to quit. Counseling combined with smoking cessation medication can double a person's chances of quitting successfully. If you or a loved one would like to quit smoking, talk to your doctor. You can also visit Quitter's Circle (www.QuittersCircle.com), an online community from Pfizer and the American Lung Association, for resources, tips and support.
