Before you start throwing punches, I should probably mention that this has nothing to do with beating people up. Rather, it’s a time to kick cigarette butts to the curb and partake in anti-smoking activism.
First started in 1996, this day aims to empower youth to raise awareness of the problem of tobacco use in their community and organize events that promote a tobacco-free lifestyle. Of course, this is a year-round effort, and it has recently been revamped as the Take Down Tobacco campaign.
According to their site, 90% of adult smokers begin this deadly addiction as teenagers, or earlier. It’s so important to educate kids, point them in the right direction, and offer up healthy alternative habits and hobbies to pursue instead of tobacco use. And it’s never too late to quit a nasty smoking habit! Luckily, you can find the products to get started on BestBuy.com.
As the weather warms up (especially for all of us Northern folk), now is the perfect time to check out what’s available in Sports & Outdoor Recreation as healthy alternatives and hobbies to pursue. When you navigate to this area of Health, Fitness & Personal Care, you can find loads of fun products! It doesn’t get any cooler than electric scooters, bikes, and boards in my opinion. If you really want to be adventurous and immersive yourself in the great outdoors, there’s tons of camping gear available. Everything you need for a healthy getaway can be found here! For a more low-key hobby, check out the variety of metal detectors available and start hunting for treasure in your free time.
If you’re a tobacco user, know someone who is, or simply want to help out impressionable youth - hopefully these healthy hobbies can aid in living a tobacco-free lifestyle!
