Mental Health Awareness Week 9th to 15th May - Smoking
You might not think it, but smoking does NOT help to relieve stress.
We’ve all heard people saying that smoking helps them relax. In a way it’s true because when they smoke, they relieve the stress of their nicotine craving.
In fact, every time a smoker finds relief in a cigarette, they line themselves up for the next round of cravings which need the relief of a cigarette. If that’s not stressful, what is?
Smokefree City & Hackney can help you break this endless cycle. For support to quit contact us on 0800 046 9946 or via our website smokefreecityandhackney.org.
