What You Did
21,746 Members Participated
This campaign is over! In case you missed it, here’s what happened.
40% of current smokers try to quit, but only 4-6% are successful. Quitting smoking is super tough, especially without support. About 2/3 of people who try to quit without help from friends and fam relapse within 2 days.
That's why 21,746 of you stepped up and shared tips and tricks on how to talk to someone about kicking the habit. Together, we helped thousands of people make it easier to have the conversation and support people in their life who are trying to quit smoking.
"The Pack That Ash Up campaign is important to me for many reasons. In general, smoking causes numerous negative effects on the body. So many young people don't realize the damage they are doing to their bodies by smoking tobacco and/or vaping. It can lead to cancer and serious health problems in the long run. I have seen first-hand what smoking can do. I lost three of my four grandparents to cancer at a young age. All of them were smokers. My grandmother that did not have cancer, did have COPD. I shared this campaign with other family members, in hopes to help them make a change and quit smoking. I choose to live a life that is healthier and is tobacco free. With all of the knowledge we have now, I hope that younger generations will choose to live a longer, healthier life without tobacco. Thank you DoSomething for giving me the opportunity to receive this scholarship! I am so grateful, and will be using it to complete my Bachelor of Science in Biology, at CSU, Channel Islands."
