Drug Information - Kick The Habit

stop smokingSometimes it can seem like everyone smokes, which can make it tempting to be part of the pack. Kicking the habit takes guts, but it's also the greatest thing you'll ever do for your body. Stay smoke-free and you can be sure you'll be proud of your achievement.

Burning truths

  • Tobacco in cigarettes contains a highly addictive drug called nicotine.
  • Nicotine is actually a stimulant - smoking speeds up the body system increasing your heart rate and blood pressure.
  • There are more than 4000 chemicals in tobacco, most of which are bad for your health.
  • Smoking can leave your skin up to 40% thinner than normal, making early wrinkles all part of the package.
Every day people give up smoking in a way that works for them. Some go for hypnosis or nicotine patches, but ultimately it takes willpower.

You've got to want to quit:
  • Make a date to stop smoking and stick to it.
  • Steer clear of smoke-situations like coffee breaks and bars.
  • Don't look for an excuse to light up. Chewing gum can help keep the craving at bay (anything that keeps your mouth or hands occupied).
  • At moments of weakness focus on the plus points: Save cash.Feel better. Smell fresher. Live longer.
  • If you turn to the fridge instead of the fags, make sure it's stocked with healthy food so you don't have to worry about your waistline.
  • Remember that every day you go without a smoke you're beating the addiction.

Time it, after:
  • 20 mins - your blood pressure drops back to normal levels
  • Two days - there's no more nicotine left in your body
  • Three to nine months - your lung capacity improves by ten percent
  • Five months - your risk of a heart attack is 50% less than a smoker
  • 10 years - your chances of a heart attack falls to the same as someone who has never lit up.
Save money
  • A pack of fags costs around four quid
  • Stub out a 20-a-day habit and save well over a grand in a year
Save your life

Smoke and your chances of dying early shoots up. Here's what a long-term habit can do:
  • Cancer (lungs, mouth, nose, throat, leukaemia,
  • Chronic-breathing problems like bronchitis and emphysema.
  • Coronary heart disease, strokes and even gangrene.
