Kolkata: City-based slimming centre Soumen’s Workout launched a Tobacco-Free campaign in Kolkata to observe ‘World No Tobacco Day’. The event started with a counseling session and was followed by a walk from Rani Rashmoni Road to Victoria Memorial.
Kids were dressed up in skeleton design with placards to raise public awareness about negative effects of smoking. The initiative was aimed at ensuring a tobacco-free society against the devastating health consequences and also against the social, environmental and economic scourges of tobacco use.
Soumen Das, Owner, Soumen’s Workout said, “We at Soumen’s Workout feel that as citizen of the country it is our responsibility to encourage users to refrain from tobacco consumption. It is equally important to create awareness about the benefits of exercising to promote health and overall well-being of the society.’’
The Anti-Tobacco Program was to develop the awareness among all the citizens suffering from the disease called lust for Tobacco. The issue of lust for Tobacco has been a nightmare in modern times and is increasing at an alarming rate.
