Thirty percent of all cancer deaths can be attributed to smoking. Fifty thousand people die yearly from exposure to second-hand smoke.  If you smoke, please find a way to stop. Internet sources tell us that just hours after the smoking cessation the body starts to reap the benefits of not smoking.  Ten years later, the chances of dying from lung cancer are half that of someone who continues to smoke.  Congratulations to CVS pharmacy for taking a stand to not sell tobacco products.  No, I don't think it will keep people from smoking, but I appreciate the fact that CVS is taking a financial stand that supports what they are all about!
