How many times have you tried to give up smoking and then because it was just “too hard” you stopped trying? Any addiction is hard to overcome and nicotine addiction is no different.
The hard facts are that:
One in every 5 people in South Africa smoke. (1)
Smoking kills up to 1 in every 2 users. (1)
When you stop – you can start afresh.
The reasons many smokers give as motivation to stop smoking relates to health, money or pure vanity. Reasons to stop are plentiful – however, what is hard, is to get the support to continue with the difficult process.
To stop is hard for most smokers because… “Few tobacco users get the help they need.” (1)
When you want the rest of your life to start – it is time to stop!
Your doctor can prescribe medication to help you stop smoking and give you the support you need to see you through the process.
