Secondhand smoke is toxic and negatively affects the lives of everyone in its path. No amount is safe to breathe, whether you are inside or out. It drifts through floorboards and heating systems in multi-unit housing, visits surrounding sunbathers at the beach, and imposes on other people’s meals in outdoor dining areas.
Interested in clearing the air? There are steps you can take to reduce your secondhand smoke exposure. Throughout this site you will find information, toolkits, contacts to make your voice heard, and more.
Most importantly, if you or someone you know is a smoker, free quit support is available through the Rhode Island Smokers Helpline. Call 1-800-QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669) or visit www.QuitnowRI.com.
