Quitting smoking is the most beneficial thing you can do for your health. You'll be less likely to suffer from a seemingly never-ending list of health problems. No matter your age, it's never too late to quit. The benefits are almost immediate. Within 48 hours our lungs begin to clear out mucus and other smoking debris; carbon monoxide is eliminated from the body and our oxygen supply rapidly improves.
The cost of smoking has increased by nearly 100% over the past 10 years. The average smoker can save £1,800 a year by stopping smoking. A 20-a-day smoker can save up to £4,000 a year!
