This Wednesday 11th March we acknowledge No Smoking Day - a campaign created to help raise awareness of the dangers and health risks of smoking and encourages smokers to quit.
The first No Smoking Day began back in 1984 and has helped more than 1.5million people stub out their cigarettes for good. Research shows that 1 in 10 smokers quit on this day!
Research has found that smoking is one of the biggest causes of death in the United Kingdom and Ireland with around 80,000 reported deaths each year.
Smoking is a leading cause of coronary heart disease and is linked to around 25,000 deaths per year.
Those who smoke have a much higher risk of developing cancer in their lungs, throat, mouth as well as other parts of their bodies.
The carbon monoxide and tar found in cigarettes do your body a great deal of damage. The carbon monoxide starves your organs of oxygen meaning they cannot function properly and the tar clings to your lungs clogging them up affecting your breathing.
Laser therapy reduces the physical symptoms you experience when you stop smoking. This allows those in receipt of the treatment to quit smoking easier.
On top of this, laser therapy helps the body to detox and remove nasty chemicals. This is the main advantage of using laser therapy to quit smoking over other nicotine replacement therapies.
Most nicotine replacement therapies contain nicotine themselves! This treatment works by balancing the body’s endorphins whilst calming the nervous system and improving mood.
Our stop smoking program involves no medicine or pills like Zyban which can cause headaches, nausea, sleep problems, agitation and, in some cases, depression.
If you want to quit but don't know where to start then why not get in touch with us today for friendly free advice.
