Life – A Parent’s Greatest Gift to their Child

Life – A Parent’s Greatest Gift to their Child

What is the best gift to give your children on Father’s Day or Mother’s Day? It’s the the gift of deciding to quit smoking!

In fact, you don’t have to wait for a special day to come along, QUIT NOW.

The gift of your being around to support your children through their youth, into adulthood and to know their children, is an added incentive to quit a life threatening habit.

The National Council Against Smoking Quit Line:  011 720 3145,  is a free service to help smokers quit the addiction to nicotine and the habit of smoking and using tobacco products.

Often children call the Quit Line for advice to help their parents to stop smoking. Children don’t like the stink of smoke on their parents and are fearful that their parents might die. Parents should not ignore this fear. Children are in addition acutely aware that smoking and second hand smoke is also harmful to them.

Give the gift of life. A gift that will protect health, make your family happy and pay for your next holiday with the money you save by not using tobacco products. Money which you would otherwise have blown into the air in little puffs of poison.
