Smoking Cessation

If you smoke, giving up is the single best thing you can do for your health.

If you smoke you are:

  • Twice as likely to die prematurely.
  • 2-3 times more likely to have a heart attack.

You can also put yourself at risk of lung cancer – the top cancer in men – and harm those who breathe your smoke, including children (passive smoking). When you stop, the benefits begin from day one:

  • Blood pressure and pulse start to fall straight away.
  • 24 hours – chances of a heart attack start to fall.
  • 72 hours – breathing is easier and energy levels improve.
  • 1-3 moths – you have improved erections and sperm count.
  • 5 years – your risk of lung cancer halves.

Many people try several times before they succeed. If you fail at first, try again. The first few days are the worst. Get over those and you’re winning.
