Quit smoking

Tobacco was introduced into Europe in the late 15th century, and people have been smoking it recreationally ever since. It wasn't until the early 20th century that the harmful effects of smoking came to light, and studies continue to expose just how dangerous the habit can be to our health. Today smoking is considered to be the greatest single cause of premature death in the UK.

Despite the abundance of evidence highlighting the health risks of smoking, many people find the habit incredibly hard to break. Often people start smoking out of curiosity, due to peer pressure or simply out of boredom. Having family members who smoke can also increase a person's chances of picking up the habit. Before long, an addiction can form and this can overwhelm people physically and emotionally.

Quitting this kind of addiction often takes more than willpower alone to accomplish. For many, hypnotherapy for smoking is an effective means of breaking the habit for good. Medication and additional treatments can also help. 

Researching the effects of smoking, learning what you'll gain from quitting and discovering all the different ways to quit is an important first step to breaking the habit.
