If you smoke, stopping smoking is the single most positive thing you can do for your health. The sad truth is that about half of all regular smokers will die from diseases directly related to their habit (source: ASH, 2015). It can seem like an impossibility to think of quitting but there is lots of support and help out there to bolster your own efforts and really get you in the right place to make this enormous, life changing decision. In fact, research has shown that people are 30% more likely to quit smoking with social support. Quitza is an online community of ex smokers (and those trying to be ex smokers) designed to support smokers in all sorts of ways in their endeavours to stop and to stay stopped. Quitza is free to join and offers a wealth of support to help you stay smoke free. They are also advocates of acupuncture to help stop smoking and acupuncturists know the tremendous benefit that Chinese Medicine and acupuncture can offer here.
So if you’re serious about quitting or serious about trying to quit, check out Quitza, and remember, there is life on the other side of cigarettes and it’s not only better, it’s healthier. That’s a fact.
