It Is Still a Big Deal In The U.S.
Interestingly, when asked, many Americans don't regard the tobacco problem as a big issue. Yet it is, given that 430,000 to 450,000 Americans die from tobacco use and second hand tobacco smoke each year, and more than 3,300,000 Americans have died from tobacco use and second hand tobacco smoke since 9/11/2001.

Suffering As Well As Death
The billion people likely to die from smoking in this century don't represent all of the suffering. Close to another billion will suffer ill health issues and impaired finances due to using tobacco. Consider this: as a group, smokers in the U.S. are sick 11 more days a year and absent from work eight more days a year than non-smokers. In addition, most of the rest of the world has far less protection from second-hand tobacco smoke than in the U.S. It's estimated another 1 billion people will suffer from second-hand tobacco smoke and at that at least 100 million people may die from second-hand tobacco smoke in this century worldwide. Around the world, tobacco use and suffering continues to increase, especially in developing nations.

Smoking Affects Everyone
Non-smokers often think of smokers as "them" and not "us." But as a community, we need to realize that most people start to smoke as our children and underage teens. Currently, about 80% of smokers in the U.S start before age 18. In addition, people with mental illness have high rates of tobacco use. More than 70% of schizophrenics smoke, and between 45% and 65% of those who suffer from major depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, and panic disorder also smoke. In addition, 80% of people with alcohol, heroin, or cocaine problems smoke. As a nation and world, its under-aged children and teens, and a disproportionately high percentage of the mentally ill, who start using tobacco products and become addicted to them. '/>"/>
