The Unicancer network supports you in quitting smoking, an approach that not only prevents cancer but is also beneficial for the tolerance and effectiveness of oncological treatments.

An avoidable risk factor

A few years ago, France launched a national ‘Tobacco-free month’ campaign in November to encourage smokers to quit the habit, offering incentives as well as advice for would-be quitters.

Smoking is the first cause of avoidable cancer and in France, smoking among young people remains the highest in Europe(1). It is never too late to stop smoking. Not only does it help prevent you getting cancer, but the benefits for health are visible just a few weeks after the last cigarette.
