Become Smoke-Free

Why quit smoking

Quitting smoking is one of the best things you can do for your health, no matter your age or how long you’ve smoked. Smoking damages your lungs, heart, and other vital organs, and increases your risk of serious health conditions such as cancer, stroke, and heart disease.

But the benefits of quitting don’t stop there. Quitting smoking can also boost your mental health and wellbeing. Research shows that quitting smoking can improve mood and help relieve stress, anxiety, and depression. It can also improve your sense of taste and smell, increase your energy levels, and help you breathe easier.
