This weekend Leicester Lung Cancer specialist nurses are taking to the streets to teach people about the benefits of e-cigarettes The move was inspired by National Lung Cancer Awareness Month and their aim is to educate people about the dangers of cigarettes, and how electronic cigarettes can help. They want to help people to understand the early signs of lung cancer and the impact that cigarettes can have on your long-term health. It has been proven for decades that cigarettes are...
Here at SMOKO we are all ex-smokers, so we know how difficult it can be to put the cigarettes down for good. In honour of Stoptober then we have collected the ones that helped us the most.   1. Set a Date To Quit Smoking Easily Like any big undertaking quitting smoking needs a bit of planning. Most of us fall into the trap of pushing quitting off until tomorrow, and keep doing that forever. The best thing you can do...
We all know that tobacco and smoking cigarettes are terrible for you, but did you know that nicotine can actually be good for you? A lot of people believe that nicotine and tobacco are the same thing, after all for a long time they basically were. Nicotine was demonised as the addictive chemical that got people hooked to smoking. But with the introduction nicotine patches and e-cigarettes people can use nicotine without the down sides that are related to smoking....
We all know smoking is terrible for us and those around us. But not many people realize how much worse smoking in the car is for you, compared to normal. It's a common sight to see a driver casually smoking while driving or when you were stopped at a red light. But the laws in the UK were changed in October 2015 making it illegal to smoke in a vehicle with anyone who is under the age of 18. This...
Any news where we see the number of people smoking dropping is normally a good thing. It means the years of information and anti-smoking schemes are working. However there has been a troubling development in the last 10 years, the rich are quitting but the poor aren't. What makes it even worse is that this is having a huge impact on life expectancy as well. For the first time in 50 years the life expectancy gap between the rich and...
E-cigarettes use (also known as vaping) has grown rapidly over the past few years. Estimates say there are currently over 3 million adults using them in the UK. And that number is rising every day. But the use of e-cigs is not confined to the UK alone. It is a phenomenon that has taken the world by storm. A 2014 report by CDC showed that 3.7% of American adults use e-cigs on a regular basis. That figure, according to the U.S Census Bureau represents...
The business side of the tobacco industry can seem like a dark place, with companies making billions every year off the back of cigarettes. However there might be light at the end of the tunnel. Recently a large group of investors worth $3.8 Trillion announced that they would no longer be investing in Tobacco. The reason? The human cost. We all know how terrible smoking is for you and how it is the largest preventable cause of death in the...
Every year WHO (the World Health Organisation) stages a worldwide No Smoking Day where they try and raise awareness for the damage smoking does not only to ourselves but to society as a whole. This year WHO is focusing on how tobacco is a threat to development, so we thought this would be a good time to look at what effect smoking and the cigarette industry has on countries. After all smoking is terrible for you, but what it can do...
How Much of Your Pay Goes to The Cost of Cigarettes? Ten quid. Tenner. Ten pounds. Seems like a fair bit of money, definitely enough that you would be annoyed if you lost it! But then you remember that £10 is the cost of cigarettes for just one pack. More even if you buy a premium brand. Ten pounds wouldn't amount to much if you were buying only one or two packs of cigarettes a month. But the thing is...
