Giving up smoking

According to anti-smoking charity, Ash, around 10 million people in the UK smoke. Despite the serious health conditions associated with smoking, it remains a popular lifestyle choice and it costs the NHS millions of pounds each year. Cigarettes contain nicotine, which is highly addictive; because of this, many smokers find it very difficult to quit. However, there is a great deal of support available if you want to give up smoking; a little bit of willpower, coupled with some emotional support and practical advice, can go a long way and you’ll feel the difference almost instantaneously.
