Stop Smoking Advice
OK, just to clarify: it's not that stopping smoking makes you ill, but rather that it sometimes SEEMS to because in some people, as their bodies adjust to being smoke-free they may experience a wide range of symptoms, from tight chest to headaches. Underlying conditions could include anything from lung cancer to diabetes - it's just that as a smoker you may not have been aware of symptoms, or just put it down to smoking (such as a cough). Have no doubt: stopping smoking makes you healthier!
