Script: If you’re in the military today and you smoke, I’m talking to you. The bottom line is this: you and I both know that the mission comes first. You joined the military for maybe a hundred different reasons but right now you’re focus is on the mission. I’m asking you to think about the fact that if you smoke, it’s a distraction. You’re not at your best; you’re not helping yourself complete the mission. Add on top of that, you quit smoking, you’re going to be doing yourself a huge service. You’re gonna live longer; you’re going to be around to enjoy the benefits that you’re earning right now.

“I was stationed in Germany until I had heart attack when I was 35. So, I went from being able to travel the world and see the world to confining my life either at home or going to doctors. And that’s all because of cigarettes.”

“While I was in the military, of course, I upped my smoking habit. I was probably smoking two packs a day or more.”

“Tobacco product use is a threat to the health and fitness of our forces and compromises readiness, the foundation of a strong national defense.”

“We encourage Service members to be tobacco-free and reach out to others to help you quit.”

“It’s never a good time to start using tobacco products and never too late to quit—your health, your performance, and your country depend on it. Sustain the force. Be fit, be healthy, be ready!”
