Smoke-free Publicity Programme for World No Tobacco Day 2016 - Let’s join the Smoke-free Family

31 May is designated as World No Tobacco Day every year in order to raise public awareness on smoking hazards around the world. Hong Kong Council on Smoking and Health (COSH) organizes a Smoke-free Publicity Programme for World No Tobacco Day 2016 with the aim to call upon every member in the community to join the “Smoke-free Family”. A set of keyarts were designed by local artist, Nothing Serious to share how to support our family members, friends, colleagues and lovers to quit smoking. The public can join the “Smoke-free Family” through the online platform and adopt a smoke-free lifestyle, as well as encourage smokers to kick the habit.

The kick-off event of the programme was held on 31 May 2016. On-air promotions at Radio 2 of Radio Television Hong Kong and a theme song were also be launched around the World No Tobacco Day.

“Smoke-free Family” Theme Song

Theme song of “Smoke-free Family” – “Give up” is produced by musician Mr Mark LUI, who has quitted smoking and performed by Mr Alex FONG, Smoke-free Ambassador of the programme. The song is packaged as a love story to increase attractiveness and to encourage the audience to give up the bad habit which is harmful to oneself. It is hoped that the song could support smokers to get rid of cigarettes and live a healthy smoke-free lifestyle.
