Let's quit smoking, for good. This webpage contains advice, signposting, and additional information to help you take the best decision you could make today: to quit smoking, for good.

Stress-Free Quitting

Today is the day to quit smoking, for good. The mental and physical health benefits it can yield are countless. Find advice on stress-free quitting below. Together, we can do this.

Quitting can be painless - and yield great benefits

There has never been a more important time look after your mental and physical health. Stopping smoking has immediate benefits to your physical health and long term will significantly reduce your chances of developing many illnesses including heart disease, diabetes, COPD, stroke and cancer. While quitting can feel stressful in the short term new research shows that many ex-smokers' mental health improves six weeks after quitting. Today is the day to stop smoking.

Some smokers believe that smoking helps you to relax, when actually smoking increases anxiety and tension. Quitting not only improves your physical health –it boosts your mental health and wellbeing too. Ex-smokers have:

  • Improved mood;
  • Less anxiety and depression;
  • better feelings about their lives.

Let's not forget about cost, either. You could, on average, save £120 each month by quitting.

Quitting is also easier than ever, with a wide range of stop smoking aids to help you on your journey, helping reduce and minimise cravings. These can even be accessed for free in certain circumstances. Need even more reasons to quit? Visit www.nhs.uk/smokefree for further reasons to give it up, for good.
