Stop smoking

Smoking has an extremely harmful effect on all of the body, particularly the heart, lungs and blood system (including the blood system in the brain).

Smokers are almost twice as likely to develop dementia as non-smokers. Smoking not only increases your risk of dementia but one in two smokers will die early due to their smoking.

Warwickshire Stop Smoking Service can offer you free, one-to-one support tailored to your needs, along with stop smoking medicines, which are available for the cost of a prescription through your GP or community pharmacist.This service is also available online at warwickshire.gov.uk/quit4good. You are four times more likely to quit smoking if you do it through these services rather than going it alone.
