Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of preventable death in the United States, accounting for more than 480,000 deaths each year (one of every five deaths), according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
As you may have heard, CVS Health will soon halt the sale of tobacco products in their stores nationwide. They've also launched a social media campaign (#OneGoodReason), asking the public to share why they've chosen to be tobacco-free. We encourage you to take part.
We've said for years that wellness makes good business sense, and clearly CVS agrees. It's why so many of our clients make tobacco cessation part of their comprehensive wellness programs.
So, what is your reason for living tobacco-free?
