Quitting smoking is one of the best decisions you’ll ever make. 

If you’re thinking of quitting smoking we’re here to support and advise you. 

Some of reasons for not wanting to quit could include: 

  • I can’t cope without it
  • I enjoy smoking
  • It is my life and my choice
  • I’m only harming myself
  • I’ve tried quitting - it’s too hard
  • My friends and family also smoke. 
                                                    

           
Consider some of the benefits of quitting

I want to look, feel, and be healthier

  • My chances of having cancer, heart attacks, heart disease, stroke, cataracts, and other diseases will go down.
  • I will be less likely to catch colds or the flu, and will be able to recover quicker if I do get sick.
  • I will breathe easier and cough less.
  • My blood pressure will go down.
  • My skin will look healthier and I will look more youthful.
  • My teeth and fingernails will not be stained.
