No smoking progress

Earlier this spring, the 14th of March was featured as a National No Smoking Day

As the day was promoted within elliotshill, a number of individuals took up the quitting smoking challenge.

Starting on that day and still battling on after well over one month is, Lowri Hadley a support worker who works largely in residential care at elliotshill.

Lowri is pictured below

 Lowri also says that “I feel really very good with a lot more energy and the bonus that I seem to sleep much better”

I think we all know by now, that the benefits of stopping smoking include, having a much reduced risk of:

  • heart disease, stroke, vascular disease and respiratory disease
  • a whole range of cancers

 Your life expectancy will be greater, and many will notice an improvement in the symptoms of smoking related diseases such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

Another important factor for Lowri is the financial cost, as smoking is expensive, and prices will surely continue to rise. If you're smoking 20 cigarettes a day, you’re likely to be spending over £3,700 a year, based on the average cost of £10.40 for a pack of 20 cigarettes.

Lowri is testament to the fact that stopping smoking can help you live life to the full. You'll feel fitter and more able to take part in physical activity. This in turn can benefit your mental health and wellbeing.
