In Nebraska, from 2013-2015, there were 20 civilian injuries and 15 firefighter injuries that were a result of smoking-related fires. For National Burn Awareness Week, consider making your home or vehicle smoke-free. Smoke-free policies significantly reduce the risk for fire-damage. #NBAW2018
“One thing that worked for me was only quitting one day at a time. If I thought about not smoking for the rest of my life, I’d totally freak out. So I decided to not smoke for the day, and told myself if I wanted to smoke tomorrow so be it, but today I won’t. As each day came to an end, I felt proud of myself for not smoking that day! The next morning, same thing…it has worked for me. I am 4 years smoke-free.” –Smoke-free Kathy #QuitStory
