BadWaysToBeNice.com

Are you one of those people who supply tobacco to youth under 19 because you are being nice?

Take a look at some videos that are funny but truly "bad ways to be nice" and hopefully you will stop and think about it next time before you help someone get their addiction on. Join the conversation with your own take on bad ways to be nice by creating a meme then post it to the site.

 

QuitTheDenial.ca

You don't call yourself a smoker because you only do it at parties, but research shows 2/3 of young people who finish just one cigarette will become daily smokers.

Join the conversation about social nibbling, social farting, and social ear wax picking and connect the dots about social smoking. Visit the 'Videos' tab to see just how ridiculous this "social" behaviour is and to have a good laugh.
