This Valentine's Day Legacy Is Showing Smokers The Love Don't Quit on Your Smoker Until They've Quit for Good. Spread the love: #loveyoursmoker

WASHINGTON, Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Too often, people think of a smoker in their life as someone who simply can't kick a 'nasty habit'. That's dead wrong – smoking is an addiction that most smokers desperately want to overcome. But it takes an average of 11 quit attempts before they succeed.

At Legacy we believe smokers and the people that love them need to know this fact. When smokers have the emotional support of their loved ones they have a better chance of quitting - however many times it takes them to do it for good.

Help spread the love this Valentine's Day by sharing this video with the hashtag #LoveYourQuitter.

For smokers looking to quit, BecomeAnEX.org is a free online quit smoking resource and community run by Legacy. The program empowers smokers to re-learn life without cigarettes

Legacy helps people live longer, healthier lives by building a world where young people reject tobacco and anyone can quit. Legacy's proven-effective and nationally recognized public education programs include truth®, the national youth smoking prevention campaign that has been cited as contributing to significant declines in youth smoking; EX®, an innovative public health program designed to speak to smokers in their own language and change the way they approach quitting; and research initiatives exploring the causes, consequences and approaches to reducing tobacco use. Located in Washington, D.C., the foundation was created as a result of the November 1998 Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) reached between attorneys general from 46 states, five U.S. territories and the tobacco industry.
