The history of this event is rather interesting, since 1996 this event which is based around tobacco prevention has been changing the lives of our youth, teens have long been the target of tobacco marketing campaigns. The empowering words and messages kick butts day delivers, regarding stop smoking and cessation, rings loud in more than 1,000 schools in the US. The goal of this is to help youth to realize they have the power to reject the tobacco industries deceptive marketing campaigns, and stay smoke free and tobacco-free! This campaign is one of many different promotions to rally schools to stop smoking, and hit big tobacco companies where it hurts. Smoking facts confirm that nicotine and tobacco use do cause lung cancer.

The events vary from school to school, but they all have one theme in common:  stop smoking. Many of the kids of our youth's family have died from lung cancer or some other lung disease. Some kids did not grow up with the knowledge that smoking is bad, and that is something you will not find in a standard textbook. Math and social studies do not include any paragraphs on the 11,000 contanimates that cigarette smoke contains. 

Elected officials are urged to take action to protect kids from tobacco by keeping these ad campaigns out of the social norms of youth today.  Community organizations; non profits; youth based coalitions;middle, high schools and tobacco free coalitions especially take part in Kick Butts Day. If you run a grant program funded by tobacco prevention, you should be participating in this event!

On Kick Butts Day children and teens will post to social media profiles such as Twitter and Facebook with anti-tobacco messages aimed at keeping other kids smoke-free. Some of the new forms of prevention marketing is used in the method of #hashtags - when you order promotional items for this event, think about what helps connect with the youth of today.  The youth of today relate to hashtags such as #TOBACCOFREE or #KICKBUTTSDAY, so that makes this method a great social norms campaign idea for Kick Butts Day. 

The sad and ugly part of tobacco prevention money are the cold hard statistics on funding and prevention. Each state received the same amount of money, for which the CDC recommends they spend a percentage on Tobacco Prevention (which is what it should be used for); Sadly there are less than 5 states nationwide that spend more than 50% of the CDC recommended amount given to the state for tobacco prevention. Some states choose not to do ANY tobacco prevention whatsoever! This is indeed a sad state of affairs and should be addressed with your local legislature. There is no excuse, for a state that receives funding from tobacco settlements,  to not use at least 25% of that money on Tobacco Prevention. Very unfortunate statistics show from the Lung American Association that only 12 states in America spend 25%-49% of the funds they receive from these these settlements on tobacco prevention. Tobacco Control is very controversial and over 20 states in America spent next to NOTHING on Tobacco Control!

Nazi Germany was the first campaign against the modern tobacco, the National Socialist Government condemning the use of tobacco, financed the investigation against him,  Sin taxes growing embargo on it, and in 1941 from tobacco was banned in several public places as a health hazard. The campaign against tobacco was also associated with racism and anti-Semitism, Jews being responsible for its initial import and the need to maintain the health being cited for the effort to crush his use of "race".

In the United Kingdom and the United States, an increase in the rates of lung cancer was picked up by the early 1930's, but the cause of this increase was still debated and confusing. A real breakthrough came in 1948, when the British physiologist Richard Doll published the first important studies which showed that smoking could cause serious damage to health. In 1950, published research in the British Medical Journal that showed a close relationship between smoking and lung cancer.

In 1964 report of the Surgeon General of United States over smoking and health likewise began suggesting the relationship between smoking and cancer, which confirmed its suggestions 20 years later in the 1980's. 

In 1954 the medical study of the British, a study of some 40 thousand medical more than 20 years, confirmed the suggestion, based in that the Government issued the advice that smoking and cancer of lung are related with them rates. The British doctors study lasted until 2001, with the result published every ten years and final results, published in 2004 by Doll and Richard Peto.

Since its introduction in the world by the native Americans in the 15th century, it has been reported that almost 1 billion deaths are directly attributable to tobacco use. The effects of smoking are critical and effect human health. Smoking facts conclude that the use of tobacco commonly leads to diseases affecting the heart, liver and lungs. Smoking is an important factor of risk for heart attacks, strokes, obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) Chronic (including chronic bronchitis and emphysema), cancer (especially lung cancer, cancers of the larynx and mouth, and pancreatic cancer). Please get help and seek out a stop smoking cessation program if you are addicted to nicotine or smoking cigarettes.
