Stopping smoking is one of the best things you will ever do for your health. Quitting is much easier when you get the right support and there are lots of options to choose from.
Even if you’ve tried before, maybe more than once, you can still succeed. What you’ve already learned will help you reach your goal of becoming an ex-smoker. The earlier you quit smoking, the more you’re likely to benefit. It’s never too late – because quitting will improve your health whatever your age and no matter how long you have smoked.
Every time you smoke a cigarette, your body is flooded with thousands of chemicals, many of which are poisonous. The day you stop, your body starts clearing itself of all those nasty toxins and the repair process begins.
You’ll notice some benefits within days or weeks:
Other benefits will follow, including:
Your longer-term risks of cancer, lung disease, heart disease and stroke will be significantly reduced, and:
You will also be less likely to develop type 2 diabetes, bone disease including osteoporosis, eye disease and dementia.
You may think that smoking supports your mental wellbeing, and helps you to relax, deal with stress and anxiety, and cope with life’s difficulties. In fact, the opposite is true. Stopping smoking boosts mental health and wellbeing. Evidence shows that after the withdrawal stage of quitting, people have reduced anxiety, depression and stress. People who have quit also have increased positive mood compared with people who continue to smoke.
Everyone benefits when you quit, so take your next step to stop smoking!
