Smoking is responsible for over 80% of deaths from lung cancer and a quarter of deaths from heart disease. This page links to guidance to help you stop.
Reasons to stop smoking
As well as a big impact on your health, smoking causes bad breath, aging of the skin, shorter life expectancy and costs a lot of money. See the ten health benefits of stopping smoking on the NHS website to understand the effects that smoking has on your body.
