Many people try to give up smoking to improve their health - but it can be difficult without help and support. We have teamed up with LloydsPharmacy for its Need-to- know health campaign which aims to make patients more aware of the support services offered by their local pharmacist - and to make the pharmacy their first point of call.
So The Mirror's Health Correspondent Martin Bagot asked LloydsPharmacy pharmacist Anshu Bhimbat in the above video and Q&A below two of the key questions people have when it comes to quitting smoking.
And Anshu has revealed some details on giving up - including the positive changes that begin to happen to your body almost immediately after your last puff.
Q: Public Health England has recently published evidence that e-cigarettes are 95% less harmful than normal cigarettes. What would you say to someone who is thinking about quitting using these?
问：英格兰公共卫生部门（Public Health England）最新发布的证据表明：电子烟的危害比普通烟少95%。那你会对试图戒电子烟的人说些什么？
A: When someone comes in to pharmacy to stop smoking it's considered a very beneficial change to their lifestyle and we would support them to do so.
There are many options available, including e-cigarettes, gums, inhalators; it's about finding the right product for you. E-cigarettes, if the right option, are considered to be less harmful than cigarette smoking as they lack the tobacco - which contains carcinogens and toxins which can be detrimental to health.
Q: What happens to the body as soon as someone stops smoking?
A: When someone stops smoking there might be some initial side-effects. These will be things like mood changes such as irritability and nicotine cravings. However these should subside after stopping smoking, as it's due to nicotine being very addictive and the body getting rid of it and the toxins that have built up from smoking.
The positive effects and benefits on your health are noticeable almost immediately. Twenty minutes after stopping smoking you will notice an improvement in your circulation, your blood pressure will return to normal. After 72 hours of stopping smoking you will notice an improvement in your breathing as your lung function will improve.
