Smoking rates are declining nationally, but the battle is far from over.
Every day, roughly 1,300 Americans die from smoking-related illnesses; that’s 480,000 a year. 

This isn’t just a national problem -
the health effects of tobacco disproportionately affect Western Pennsylvanians:

The national average of people who smoke is about 18.1%

In Pennsylvania, 21% of residents smoke

In Allegheny County, 23% (more than 1 in 5) people smoke


From November 11-17, 2018 

Tobacco Free Allegheny, along with their partners, will be celebrating the

4th annual Allegheny Quits for Life Cessation Awareness Week!


What is Allegheny Quits for Life?

Allegheny Quits for Life is a week-long series of events and communications designed to support residents' efforts to quit smoking and using tobacco products. Allegheny Quits for Life partners are critical in conveying the message that a smoke-free Allegheny is a healthier Allegheny, and to secure commitments from Allegheny residents to take the first steps toward quitting.
