The harmful effects of tobacco use affect so many more people than smokers themselves. Nearly everyone has a story to tell about their own tobacco use or about the tobacco use of someone they love. Even the tobacco use of strangers can have a powerful impact on our lives if, for example, we live in multi-unit housing where smoking is allowed or we have an asthmatic child who has to be protected from secondhand smoke in public areas.
