In this category, we have information about Tobacco - from cigarettes and other tobacco products, and also products that contain nicotine as well as e-cigarettes (also known as vaporizers). 

Although we have seen a decline in the use of cigarettes, and our youth know the dangers of smoking cigarettes, "Vaping" or "JUULing" is now considered an epidemic among our youth!

This is a Public Service Announcement to keep everyone updated on the dangers of #vaping and start a conversation with friends and loved ones so they know the risk. We will be updating these numbers along with the CDC. 

For a wealth of information in addition to what we have here, please visit Breathe NH's website.

Tobacco kills 1 person every 4 seconds from primarily preventable diseases such as lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD, which includes chronic bronchitis & emphysema), & tuberculosis.  Want to quit? Call 800-QUITNOW (7848-669) or visit the website Quit Now NH.  For information on COPD, see the Breathe New Hampshire​ website (above). #NoTobacco
