The theme for this year’s campaign is ”Stopping smoking improves your brain health”
You may think that smoking supports your mental wellbeing, and helps you to relax, deal with stress and anxiety, and cope with life’s difficulties.
In fact, the opposite is true. Stopping smoking boosts mental health and wellbeing.
Evidence shows that after the withdrawal stage of quitting, people have reduced anxiety, depression and stress.
People who have quit also have increased positive mood compared with people who continue to smoke.
Stopping smoking is one of the best things you will ever do for your health. Quitting is much easier when you get the right support and there are lots of options to choose from.
Even if you’ve tried before, maybe more than once, you can still succeed. What you’ve already learned will help you reach your goal of becoming an ex-smoker.
