Looking to Quit Smoking?
WHY SHOULD I QUIT
There are many benefits to giving up tobacco, not just for your health but also for the health of those around you. The harmful effects of smoking are widely known and are the single greatest cause of illness and premature death in the UK. Approximately 160,000 people dies from smoking-related illness and conditions each year.
Being exposed to someone else's smoke, through passive smoking can also increase the likelihood of developing the health risks and issues that affect smokers, including lung cancer and heart disease. Children who are exposed to cigarette smoke, in the house and the car, may develop asthma and ear infections, whilst smoking around babies can increase the risk of cot death. Not only that, children with parents who smoke are 3 times more likely to start when they're an adult. When you can see the affects of tobacco on your health and those around you it is easy to see how important it is to give up, and with our support you're 4 time more likely to give up for good.
