Smoking

Every year thousands of people stop smoking for the first time in years. This year, you could be one of them. Going smoke free is the single most important thing you can do to dramatically increase your chances of living a longer healthier life.

Medical research clearly proves the damaging effects of smoking on health for the smoker and others. Smoking is the principal causes of heart disease, strokes, many fatal cancers and breathing disorders. Smoking can reduce fertility, cause premature aging and affect sleep, to name but a few of its detrimental health effects.
