During October, the NHS is running their ‘Stoptober’ Campaign, which aims to help you quit smoking for good.
Research shows that if you stop smoking for 28 days, you’re more likely to quit for good.
We encourage people to take part in schemes like this, because smoking can have a negative affect on your teeth and gums too. You’ll find you pick up more staining on your teeth, you’ll have bad breath, you may lose teeth due to underlying gum disease (which is harder to spot due to the restricted blood flow to your gums), and you’ll be at higher risk of mouth and throat cancer.
So do your bit today and join in with Stoptober. It’s not too late to break up with the cigarettes!
