Tobacco Body

So what are the risks to your health? Many people knows that smoking can cause health problems. Often impacts of smoking can go unseen for many years. Sadly over 100,000 people die from a smoking related disease, mainly due to cancer, heart disease and lung problems. However this page will show you that smoking tobacco products can impact the whole body. Click on the link for Tobacco Body to find a fantastic webpage produced by Cancer Society of Finland.

This page isn’t designed to scare you into quitting but aims to present information for you that is evidenced based and unbiased. If you are concerned about your health then we have Specialist Advisers, who are ex-smokers themselves, who can chat to you. Please call 0300 421 0040 for advice.

Social support

The best thing about our job is seeing people achieve something they never felt possible. Each person who quits has their own story to tell about how quitting has benefited them. No need for us to tell you them, far better to hear the stories for yourself…

I am now on the 10th non smoking week. I have had no problems because I wanted to give up. Food tastes good and I can smell everything including flowers. I just want to tell everyone how they will feel.Sue

I came to the Quit Stop Shop in January. The girls were great. I stopped smoking then and not one since. Try hard and you can do it! – Frank, Gloucester

I had been smoking for nearly 50 years and as a result developed serious health problems related directly to smoking. Thanks to the staff at the Stop Smoking Service who were very supportive I have now quit for good.Stefan, Gloucester

Passing by the Quit Stop today I had to let staff know that it is 5 years since I quit with the service. THANK YOU. Sylvia
