Pontypool Pacers

Should I stop smoking?

Yes. Giving up smoking not only reduces your risk of developing heart disease, but also the risk of many other serious illnesses, like cancer and emphysema. No matter how old you are, it is not too late to stop. As soon as you do, your health will improve immediately. Studies show that, after five years of giving up, the risk of developing heart disease is the same as for someone who has never smoked.

Giving up smoking is not easy and it may take several tries before you succeed.

Keep in mind that plenty of help is available ? nicotine patches or gum, acupuncture and hypnotherapy are just a few of your options. Ask your doctor for advice. Also, a number of local and national organisations and helplines can offer you advice.

You can also call QUITline (0800 002 200) free from 9am to 11pm. This is a national helpline that can provide sound advice and information on giving up smoking.
