How is smoking really affecting you?

Smoking affects more than just your health; it has an impact on the health of those around you & on your bank balance! If you quit smoking today you could…


Save Money

Smoking is expensive and prices will continue to rise. If you're smoking 20 cigarettes a day, you’re likely to be spending about £3,500 a year, based on the average cost of £9.60 for a pack of 20 cigarettes.


Live a Longer, Healthier Life

Although smoking seriously harms your health, once you stop, your body starts to repair itself immediately.


Within days you'll experience:

  • a drop in heart rate
  • carbon monoxide and oxygen levels in blood return to normal (similar to those who've never smoked)
  • your sense of taste and smell improving

Within weeks you'll benefit from:

  • improved lung function
  • less coughing and shortness of breath

Within a few months you'll experience:

  • an improvement in symptoms of chronic bronchitis (phlegm, wheezing, shortness of breath)
  • reduced risk of ulcers

Stop putting others at risk

When a cigarette burns it releases a dangerous cocktail of over 5,000 different chemicals. Many of these chemicals are poisonous and more than 70 may cause cancer! Every year, second-hand smoke kills thousands of people in the UK from lung cancer, heart disease, stroke and the lung disease Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

More than 80 per cent of second-hand smoke is invisible and odourless, so no matter how careful you think you're being, your family still breathes in harmful poisons, putting them at risk!
