Abstract:
Smoking is the main health risk factor that can be avoided, but remains the largest single cause of premature death in developed countries, accounting for almost 20% of all mortality. Smoking increases the risk of approximately 30 diseases, for some of them even by 10 to 30 times. There exist different measures/intervention programmes to tackle the problem of smoking, anti-smoking campaigns being one of them. Every year, 13,000-14,000 people in Croatia die from the consequences of smoking. Although the advantages of quitting smoking are wellknown, large number of smokers find hard to give up smoking. As a response to this problem, in Croatia the campaign »Say Yes to No-smoking« was organized. As a part of this campaign, a first national »Smoke Out Day« was organized on March 2003 under the slogan »Croatia Breathes«.
