There are nearly 12 million smokers in France. Tobacco still remains a major cause of death, with 75 deaths per year.
The number of daily smokers is higher when the social level is lower, i.e. among the third of the population with the lowest income.
Nearly 6 in 10 daily smokers want to quit smoking, but find it difficult to do so.
A third of smokers have tried, but have not avoided relapse.
Campaigns to help smokers to quit have been implemented, with fairly limited success. The Tobacco info service e-coaching application, designed by Health Insurance in partnership with Public Health France, offers a complete and personalized program to optimize the chances of definitively stopping smoking (tips, support videos, monitoring of benefits of stopping on a daily basis…).
We can welcome this, but for many smokers, this remains insufficient, because they are so dependent on tobacco. We want to pray for those who wish to be freed from this addiction.
"Lord, you know those who suffer from this tobacco addiction. We pray that in a miraculous and supernatural way, they will be freed from this physical and psychic bond. Thank you for all those who have found in you the strength to free from this chain. May this grace be shared by all those who are affected by this problem, and are united with us to escape from it! In the name of Jesus, may they receive this liberation! Amen!”
