Day of the Ex-smoker

26 September 2013: Day of the Ex-smoker

This afternoon in Brussels, Health Commissioner Tonio Borg will open the ‘Day of the Ex-smoker’, the first health awareness day to celebrate the achievements of Europe’s ex-smokers.

The Day of the ex-smoker is the opportunity to celebrate all the victories of ex-smokers in Europe and in the world including freedom, money, self-confidence, health.

Internationally famous DJ, Bob Sinclar, will join the Commissioner in congratulating ex-smokers and announce 1,000 free downloads for EU citizens of his song “Summer Moonlight” which he has dedicated to the Day of the Ex-Smoker

The initiative is part of the European Commission’s three year “Ex-smokers are Unstoppable” campaign. Awareness campaigns are an important element of the Commission’s tobacco policy in addition to legislation on tobacco products (and on their advertising and sponsorship) and support to Member States.
