your efforts to suffer later in life by smoking inside of one of
these helmets? You won't be murdering others while you smoke.

Welcome to LivingSmokeFree.com. I'm your
host--Dave Bedford. I have been an anti-tobacco activist since I
was thirteen (in 1962) when I used to poke pinholes in my parent's cigarettes and
write "poison sticks" on their cigarette packages.
I intend to convince you that the practice of inhaling heated and poisonous
molecules into one's lungs--just to satisfy a nicotine addiction, is
criminal unless the smoker lives as a hermit.
I'm not only advocating a wholesale ban on smoking
in public places but a total ban on the sale of tobacco
products and I have created this site to present sufficient evidence to support such a position.
A total ban on the sale of cigarettes
is not as drastic as it sounds as 70% of smokers want to quit and many tobacco-challenged smokers invite the
opportunity of cigarettes not being widely available.
I'm hoping to motivate you into taking action in making the sale of
every group of 14
smokers cause the death of 1 non-smoker. One out of every two smokers dies due to their smoking
Canada reports that 45,000 Canadians die from smoking each year.
for a Smoke-Free Canada report that cigarette smoking in Canada causes between 4,696 and 7,945
non-smoker deaths each year. Therefore smokers are killing innocent bystanders.
Why do we let this criminal act continue?
Then there are the fire deaths statistics.
Smoking causes an estimated 30 percent of fire deaths in the United States.
Some 2 million fires occur each year in the United States alone. These fires result in about 5,000 deaths, 54,000 hospitalizations and 1.4 million injuries. The overall cost of fire in the United States, which has been estimated at up to $200 billion a year, represents 1 to 2 percent of the U.S. gross domestic product.
butts cause serious environmental
pollution. What happens after that butt gets casually flicked onto the street, nature trail, or beach? Typically wind and rain carry the cigarette into the water supply, where the toxic chemicals the cigarette filter was designed to trap leak out into aquatic ecosystems, threatening the quality of the water and many aquatic lifeforms. Cigarette butts may seem small, but with an estimated 4.5 trillion butts littered every year, the toxic chemicals add up!
