Why Quit?

For Your Health

Tobacco smoke contains more than 7,000 chemicals, including 69 known to cause cancer. These affect your mental and physical health.

If You're Pregnant

Quitting smoking at any time during your pregnancy can reduce the risk of harm to you and your baby, and give your baby a great start in life.

To Save Money

Smoking is an expensive habit and the cost is increasing every year. Quitting can save you money now, as well as saving on future health costs.

Quit For Loved Ones

Cigarette smoke is harmful to everyone who breathes it in, from your friends and family, to children and pets.
