You may recall from last week – ”the tobacco-free week” here in Sweden – that the number of smokers has increased among teenagers. According to FHI ( The Swedish National Institute of Public Health, in Swedish: ”Statens Folkhälsoinstitut”), more than 40% of the girls in their second year at high school (in Swedish: ”gymnasium”) smoke. Horryfying numbers, I must say!
I wrote a blog post last week where I clearly stated that I of course support the proposals from FHI, e.g. not allowing tobacco ads, and not allowing tobacco exposure in supermarkets. But I also feel that there is a very big necessity of changing the attitudes towards tobacco among teenagers. I am therefore extremely happy to see the new ”launch film” for the Dizza Tobak-project uploaded at dizzatobak.se. I really hope that not only kids get inspired by the movie, but also adults so they support their teenagers in engaging in the fight against tobacco.
