A friend or relative may think they are “being nice” by buying, or giving cigarettes to a teenager. In reality, they may be supporting the creation of an addiction, disease, or causing death. The Bad Ways to be Nice campaign was developed by the Central East Tobacco Control Area Network. The campaign has been adopted by the South West Tobacco Control Area Network, which includes our Health Unit.
