Stopping smoking is the single most important thing you can do to improve your health and wellbeing.
Being smokefree will also protect the health of people around you by reducing their exposure to secondhand smoke. It will also save you money - the average smoker saves £150 a month when they quit.
If you are pregnant, stopping smoking is even more important. Smoking whilst pregnant raises the risk of infant mortality by 40 per cent and can cause many other problems, such as increased risk of miscarriage or low birth weight for baby.
