Smoking and Health Problems in Lambeth
Smoking is a highly addictive activity due to inhaling nicotine. Nicotine is an addictive substance but is not the harmful element that causes illness and potentially death. The carcinogens and toxins in tobacco smoke can cause serious health damage and death. The best way to prevent the damage caused by smoking is to quit.
Many people who would benefit from quitting smoking may need help in reducing the harmful effects of smoking by gradually stopping the habit. The most effective way of improving your health from the effects of smoking is by quitting immediately but this is not always the most practical solution. Other methods include:
- A gradual method for reducing smoking in steps
- Giving up smoking without giving up nicotine
- Long-term or temporary use of nicotine-containing products
- Education and training in the effects of smoking
