May 31 is World No Tobacco Day, an annual celebration established by the World Health Organization. Each year, the event covers a wide range of topics, including public awareness of the dangers of tobacco and what the WHO is doing to combat the tobacco epidemic.

This year, the theme ‘commit to quit’ aims to support more than 100 million people worldwide to abstain from tobacco. The initiative is not limited to one day this time, but a year-long campaign to equip tobacco users with the tools and digital solutions needed to stop successfully.

To support World No Tobacco Day and the commitment to quit, we highlight some of our latest articles from the Magazine for Smoking Cessation.
