Stop Smoking

Description

Stopping smoking is the most important change you can make to improve your health. Anybody can stop if they want to. You are less likely to get cancer of the throat, lungs, bowels and skin if you give up. You are less likely to have a heart attack or stroke, or get bronchitis or emphysema. Your children and those close to you will also benefit from not breathing in your smoke. You will get your sense of smell and taste back and you will be able to do more exercise without losing your breath.

Our Advice
  • Try to give up and try again if you did not succeed the previous time.
  • Ask family and friends to help you. You will need their support. Explain to them why you are trying to give up.
  • Try to give up with someone else close to you.
  • You will need willpower and determination. It will not be easy.
  • You will get cravings for the nicotine when you stop. Ask your pharmacist which products are available to help you stop.
  • You may want to eat more when you are stopping smoking. Make sure you eat healthy snacks to avoid putting on weight.
  • If you want to know the best way to stop smoking ask your pharmacist for advice.
