Stories of Tobacco Victims


With 27.45 crore Indians already using tobacco and the number rising steadily, the future of our country is in jeopardy. 12 lakh Indians die each year from tobacco use and your friend, child, spouse or parents are not immune to it. Tobacco use leads to fatal diseases and reduces life of a person by at least 10 years, taking away precious years of a person’s life and leaving behind helpless family members. Quit while there is still time, else you’ll be left with regret and the trauma of impending death to live with.

India is a party to the FCTC.
