Public Health England has launched a new Smokefree Health Harms campaign to encourage the nation’s 7 million smokers to make a quit attempt this January.
The new TV advert illustrates how poisons from tar in cigarettes enter the bloodstream, spreading around the body in seconds, causing damage to major organs, as data reveals one person in England is admitted to hospital every minute with a smoking related illness. 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.
If your new year's resolution was to stop smoking, why not consider accessing free NHS stop smoking support through your local participating GP surgery or pharmacy.
If going to your GP or pharmacy doesn’t appeal, why not go online?
To find your nearest GP surgery/pharmacy offering stop smoking support or to find out what support is available online, visit the smoking pages on this website.
