Quit Smoking

Do you want to stop smoking?

Many smokers continue smoking not through free choice but because they are addicted to cigarettes. A large part of this addiction arises from dependence on the nicotine delivered rapidly to the brain with each inhalation.

Beneficial health changes when you stop smoking
Stopping smoking is always urgent but it is never too late to benefit from doing so. Every cigarette smoked damages the lungs in a way that may not show up until later in life. After the age of 35-40 years, for every year of continued smoking a person loses 3 months of life expectancy. Many smokers think that they will be more miserable when they stop but the evidence is that they will have better mental health and be happier.
