While many people know that smoking is bad for your health, most underestimate just how dangerous smoking is. Smoking is the number one cause of preventable death in the United States. This video serves as an update to my 2006 video "Premature deaths caused by smoking", incorporating new information just released in the February 12, 2015 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine article titled "Smoking and Mortality — Beyond Established Causes”.

"I Am The Only Smoker I Know"

Some people find themselves in the unenviable position of being the only smoker in their family, social or professional circles. This often leaves them feeling isolated when smoking and thinking they are not understood when they are quitting. The fact that some people find themselves as the only smoker illustrates an important point though--a whole lot of people in the world who used to smoke have quit and have successfully stayed off of smoking.
