Pass on something better than tobacco to children

By Adam Bangizwe-Bizose Sibuyi, South Africa

Let us be reminded to help young people be tobacco-free.

As role models, parents and caregivers, we can pass on something better, like stories, wisdom, support and security. Let’s teach our children traditional values of living healthy and tobacco-free lives.


Smoking is harmful. It makes asthma worse, increases risks of pneumonia and decreases lung function. Smoking affects breathing and makes singing or playing sports more difficult. Cigarettes are addicting, even after a few times using them. The earlier someone starts smoking, the harder it is to quit.

I am wrapping up by asking parents and family members to comply with South African are Tobacco Control Act and not give tobacco to young people under 18 years of age.


#Tobacco Has No Place in my Precious Body.
