Research tells us that hookah is not a safe alternative to smoking. Burning hookah, including hookah that is tobacco-free, still creates cancer-causing chemicals. Both the first-hand and second-hand smoke produced by herbal shisha contained these known cancer-causing agents at levels equal to or greater than that of tobacco products. Just because products are labelled herbal doesn’t mean they’re safe. Inhaling any smoke into your lungs can be harmful. #NNSW #NationalNonSmokingWeek #smoking

There are no standards or labeling requirements for Shisha. This makes it hard to know exactly what is in the product. #NNSW #NNSW16 #NationalNonSmokingWeek

Message from the Minister of Health - National Non-Smoking Week – January 17-23, 2016

Canada has made great strides in tobacco control, demonstrated by our country’s all-time low smoking rate of 15 per cent. However, millions of Canadians continue to smoke, increasing their risk for developing cancer, heart disease, lung disease, stroke, or other complications. During National Non-Smoking Week, and throughout the year, the Government of Canada supports smokers in their efforts to quit smoking and live healthier lives. #NNSW #NationalNonSmokingWeek

Stress is a common trigger for smoking. Here is a different strategy to deal with the stress that often goes along with the Holiday Season. Giving, generosity and kindness not only allow us to contribute to the lives of others and find meaning in our own lives, but science shows that these characteristics enhance our physical and mental health. It can even add years to our lives. #quitsmoking #quittobacco www.albertaquits.ca

Quitting cold turkey has the lowest rates for success among those who are looking to quit smoking for good. Despite this, most smokers who try to quit go cold turkey at some point. Success rates vary. www.albertaquits.ca www.fb.com/albertaquits #quitsmoking #smoking
