Will stopping smoking improve my health?
We all know that stopping smoking improves your physical health. But it’s also proven to boost your mental health and wellbeing: it can improve mood and help relieve stress, anxiety and depression. People with mental health problems are likely to feel much calmer and more positive, and have a better quality of life, after giving up smoking.
Evidence suggests the beneficial effect of stopping smoking on symptoms of anxiety and depression can equal that of taking antidepressants.
What are the mental health benefits of quitting smoking?
Most smokers say they want to stop, but some continue because smoking seems to relieve stress and anxiety. It’s a common belief that smoking helps you relax. But smoking actually increases anxiety and tension. Smokers are also more likely than non-smokers to develop depression over time.
When people stop smoking, studies show:
- Anxiety, depression and stress levels are lower
- Quality of life and positive mood improve
- The dosage of some medicines used to treat mental health problems can be reduced
Will any of the medication prescribed to me affect me?
After your initial consultation with our advisor, we will determine if certain medication can be prescribed to you. If medication cannot be prescribed, our advisors will provide an alternative in the form of NRT products which are just as effective.
