1-minute Speech on Anti Tobacco Day
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Today, we stand together to mark Anti Tobacco Day. This day is important because it helps us remember the dangers of tobacco. Tobacco is a plant that is used to make cigarettes and other products that harm our health.
Tobacco is like a slow poison. It hurts our lungs, heart, and other parts of the body. It is a big reason for diseases like cancer. Many people who use tobacco get sick and some even lose their lives.
You might wonder why people use tobacco if it’s so harmful. The truth is, once people start, it’s very hard to stop. This is because tobacco has a substance called nicotine. Nicotine makes people feel good for a short while but then makes them want more. It’s like a trap.
On Anti Tobacco Day, we want to tell everyone about this trap. We want to help people understand that it’s better not to start using tobacco. If someone is already using it, we want to help them stop.
We also want to talk to our leaders. We want them to make rules that make it harder for tobacco companies to sell their products. We want them to help people who are trying to quit.
Lastly, we want to support each other. If you know someone who is trying to quit, be kind to them. It’s not easy, but with help, they can do it.
Thank you for being here today. Let’s spread the word and make a world free from tobacco.

2-minute Speech on Anti Tobacco Day
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Today, we gather to mark an important day, Anti Tobacco Day. This day is not just about telling you to quit smoking or chewing tobacco. It’s about understanding why it’s so important for your health, for the health of those around you, and for the world.
Tobacco, in any form, is harmful. It’s like a slow poison. When you smoke or chew tobacco, you are inviting many diseases. These diseases do not come suddenly. They take time, slowly damaging your body, your lungs, your heart. And when they hit, it becomes very tough to fight back.
You might think, “I’m young, I’m strong, nothing will happen to me.” But remember, diseases do not see your age or your strength. They attack when your body is weak, and tobacco makes your body weak. It’s like a monster that eats your health, bit by bit. And the worst part is, it doesn’t just harm you. It harms those around you. When you smoke, the smoke that comes out of your cigarette is also dangerous. It’s called second-hand smoke. It can make your friends, your family, even your pets sick.
Now, let’s talk about the world. Every year, millions of trees are cut down to make cigarettes. This is causing harm to our environment. Trees give us fresh air to breathe, they are home to many animals. When we cut them down, we are not just losing fresh air, we are also destroying the homes of many animals. This is not fair to them, and it’s not fair to us.
So, what can we do? The answer is simple. Say no to tobacco. If you are using tobacco, try to quit. I know it’s not easy. But remember, nothing is impossible if you have the will. If you find it hard, ask for help. There are many people, many organizations who are ready to help you.
And if you are not using tobacco, that’s great! But your job doesn’t end there. Help those who are trying to quit. Encourage them, support them. And most importantly, spread the word. Talk about the harms of tobacco, talk about why it’s important to quit.
In the end, it’s all about making a choice. A choice to live a healthy life, a choice to protect those around you, a choice to save our environment. Today, on Anti Tobacco Day, let’s make that choice. Let’s say no to tobacco. Let’s choose health over harm, love over poison, life over death.
