I have never been a smoker and have never condoned it. My Aunt is currently battling Small Cell Lung Cancer which is likely caused by being a long time smoker. Lung cancer is the LEADING CANCER KILLER IN THE U.S. (and I bet that will surprise a few people, but should it?)
Lung cancer deaths can be prevented by both screenings and quitting smoking.

That being said…
I am beyond happy that CVS has taken the initiative to STOP selling tobacco products! This is a MAJOR move but as a leading pharmacy, it only makes sense that they take a preventative measure against major health issues caused by tobacco. I am really hoping that other pharmacies and companies follow their lead in an effort to protect the people and raise awareness.
