Positive changes when you quit

Teeth - Nicotine and tar stains teeth when you smoke and a reduced blood flow to your gums increases your risk of gum disease. When you stop smoking you will eventually have a whiter smile and fresher breath!

Taste - Smoking reduces blood flow to your taste buds. Quitting will improve this and your sense of taste will usually return.

Smell - Reduced blood flow and harmful chemicals from smoking can reduce your sense of smell. By quitting, your clothes and hair will also smell fresher.

Energy - Your body instantly gets more oxygen when you quit smoking. Circulation improves and you are less likely to feel out of breath when being active.

Breathing - When you quit smoking, your lungs and airways will benefit from the cleaner air. Eventually, you will cough less and breathe more easily.

National Public Health guidance is that vaping is not risk free, however, it is much less harmful than smoking and is an effective quitting aid for adult smokers. Smoking is a leading cause of disease, disability and premature death. As vaping is not risk free it should be discouraged in children and young people who have never smoked.
