Smoking damages your body in many ways. From the day-to-day effects on your heart and your breathing, to longer-term smoking-related diseases such as heart disease, cancer and stroke. Your smoke can harm your family’s health, too.
No matter how long you’ve smoked for, quitting can help improve your health straight away.
Carbon monoxide and nicotine will be eliminated from your body.
Coughs, wheezing and breathing problems improve as your lung function is increased by up to 10%.
One You East Sussex stop smoking advisors can support you throughout your quit attempt. We will see you (up to a maximum of 12 appointments) to help you remain smoke free. You are four times more likely to quit for good with support.
Your first stop smoking appointment will last for 30 minutes. At this appointment the advisor will ask you about any quit attempts you may have had in the past and look at your current smoking habit.
You will also be asked to do a simple breath test to look at carbon monoxide levels in your breath. This helps to determine your dependency levels and the amount and type of medication you might need.
Nicotine Replacement Therapy is available on prescription and these medications will be discussed with you on your first appointment.
If you would like to be seen with another family member or friend this can be arranged.
Your risk of coronary heart disease is cut in half.
The NHS Smokefree website is a great place to start.
The site is packed full of information and handy guides to suit different types of people. You can order a Quit Kit, take an addiction test, calculate how much you’ll save when you quit and discover the effects smoking has on the body – plus much more.
