The Start of a New Movement

On Breaking Free from Nicotine Day, we honor and celebrate African Americans who have chosen to break free from nicotine's harmful effects and resist the tobacco industry's predatory marketing practices by saying "No" to Tobacco. Saying "No" to Tobacco is a powerful statement of self-care and refusal to let big tobacco dictate their lives.
