There are over 11 million ex-smokers in the UK and it's never too late to quit!  Stopping at any age will increase your life expectancy, as long as you stop before you develop cancer or another serious disease.

If you think about the different benefits you will see if you quit smoking, it can be a brilliant way to motivate yourself, such as:

  • Improving the health of your major organs, along with your breathing and general fitness

  • Reducing the chances of your children getting bronchitis, pneumonia, asthma attacks, meningitis and ear infections

  • No longer smelling of stale tobacco with better looking teeth and skin

  • Saving a lot of money


Seven out of every ten smokers want to stop, but they don't all want to stop in the same way, so it's important to choose a method which is most suitable for you.  There's lots to choose from, including local stop smoking services, nicotine replacement patches / inhalers / gum, prescription tablets and e-cigarettes / vaping.


E-cigarettes / vaping

There's growing evidence that e-cigarettes / vaping has helped many thousands of smokers in England to quit and that they're even more effective if combined with expert help from local stop smoking services.

Take a look at Public Health England's e-cigarettes versus cigarettes film...
