Weedless Wednesday 2023: History

The Canadian Council for Tobacco Control has coordinated National Non-Smoking Week for over 40 years. The purpose of Weedless Wednesday, according to the Canadian Council for Tobacco Control, is to encourage a "one day at a time approach to quitting smoking, a concept that appeals to many smokers who may be deterred by the idea of going an entire week - or lifetime - without cigarettes, but who may be able to handle one smoke-free day.

Due to their addictive qualities, cannabis and nicotine use can be difficult to stop. Many smokers have acknowledged that giving up their habit was like saying goodbye to their "best friend." Inhaling smoke or vapour from these substances, however, may pose long-term health risks and have detrimental effects on health, so it is always the healthiest option. Smoking lowers the body's level of "good" cholesterol, raising the risk of coronary heart disease. Smoking also raises blood pressure and raises the chance of having a stroke.

Smokers who also abstain from tobacco use for a full day may lower their risk of experiencing a heart attack during that time.

Numerous fatal diseases, including lung cancer and cancers of the bladder, throat, blood, bone marrow, cervix, liver, mouth, pancreas, colon, and others are associated with smoking.
