Smoking is bad for your health and can cause negative health effects, such as cancer and disease. Since 1999, smoking rates have declined, from 18% of women to 11%, but only from 20% to 18% for men. Right now, there are an estimated 100,000 more men than women smokers in BC. QuitNow – a province-wide Lung Association resource funded by the BC Ministry of Health, is available to help those who wish to quit smoking find resources and support for their journey.
