Smoking Cessation Support Service

Overview

Smoking is the major cause of lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Smoking also increases your risk of other respiratory conditions and cancers. Quitting smoking can reduce your risk of heart disease by 50% in one year. Quitting smoking before you get pregnant or during the first trimester of pregnancy can reduce your risk of having a low birth weight baby.
