The Youth Solutions Youth Advisory Group (YAG)  first launched the #whyichoose campaign in 2015, reinvigorating the campaign each year.

The project aims to start a conversation about the risks of tobacco smoking and the benefits of quitting smoking, cutting back or not starting to begin with.

The #whyichoose campaign encourages people to post their Twitter and Instagram content using the hashtag #whyichoose, to share their message about the safer choices they make around smoking. The posts will then appear on the main social media feed of the #whyichoose website.

People can also visit the #whyichoose Facebook page – www.facebook.com/whyichoose – to post their content.

The campaign is active between March and June each year.
