Tips From Former Smokers®

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention tobacco education campaign, Tips From Former Smokers®, profiles real people—not actors—who are living with serious long-term health effects due to smoking and secondhand smoke exposure. Campaign ads have featured people living with COPD, lung cancer, amputations, and other serious health conditions as a result of their smoking.

The campaign addresses health disparities in pursuit of health equity by increasing the reach, representation, receptivity, and accessibility of smoking cessation messages. Tips also increases awareness of free quit-smoking resources among adults—no matter who they are, where they live, or how much money they make.
