Quit smoking Plan
How to quit smoking
The days of lighting up a cigarette will seem like a lifetime ago, but it only takes one slip to fall off the wagon – stay committed to the cause.
Understanding the facts
When you smoke your immune system is less effective at fighting off infections, meaning you are more likely to get sick. Your body should now be able to fully focus on fighting infection rather than trying to fight against the inflammation and damage caused by tobacco.
Any cravings you now get should come in bursts rather than being a constant, but they shouldn't be taken lightly. A summer festival, bonfire night or reunion with old friends could create smoking triggers that amplify your craving levels. Don’t get complacent!
