Why quit smoking?
If you stop smoking, it will reduce your risk of serious illnesses such as heart disease or cancer. It will improve your breathing, appearance of your skin and teeth and save you some money. When you stop, it will also protect the health of those closest to you.

Giving up smoking is one of the best things you'll ever do for your health. There are lots of other benefits too, and they start almost immediately.
