My aunt was my support, my love, and my attention. When I think of her, I think about the authority she had. She never needed to raise her tone. When I think of her, I think about her modesty and how even the most ordinary flower could make her happy, regardless of the fact that she could afford everything she ever wanted.
Anyone who has quit smoking knows how difficult and painstaking the process is. From the time I was in high school until the age of 29, I saw cigarettes as a reward, a comfort, a five-minute break from work or lectures, and an ideal way to spend time while waiting for city transport.
Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) is currently regarded as one of the most desirable countries for those who like tobacco. Tourist services come second to the constant consumption of tobacco products, so public places rarely have non-smoking areas.
The Klima Bez Dima initiative invites youth from across Bosnia and Herzegovina to submit creative multimedia content that tackles topics related to smoking in BiH and its impacts and/or promotes the benefits of a smoke-free environment. The content submitted as a part of this contest will be featured across the Klima Bez Dima and Balkan Diskurs online and social media platforms in an effort to promote the amendment of BiH tobacco control laws and advocate for a healthier environment for the country’s citizens.
