Stop Smoking For Dummies (R)
Everyone knows about the risks and diseases associated with smoking, of which there are many, including: lung cancer, cardiovascular disease, emphysema, a shorter life expectancy and increased risk of heart attacks and stroke, to name a few. Smoking also claims around 114,000 lives in the UK each year (netdoctor.co.uk, February 2005), equivalent to over 300 deaths a day. For many people, smoking is seen as an addiction that they just can't overcome, and for this reason and many others, the decision to quit is far from a casual one.
