Across the NHS and here at Yetminster Health Centre we want to help you stop smoking!
Smoking is one of the biggest causes of death and illness in the UK. Every year around 76,000 people in the UK die from smoking. Smoking causes around 7 out of every 10 cases of lung cancer and it also causes cancer in many other parts of the body.
Additionally, smoking is expensive, the smoke can make your clothes smelly and can cause yellow stains on your furniture and ceilings. Sadly, children are up to three times as likely to start smoking if their parents smoke.
So make 2024 the year you decide give up smoking. Speak to a clinician at the health centre today for support and guidance, or check out the NHS website for lots of services that can help you quit.
