Smok­ing

No. 1 Magazine - - FRONT PAGE -

Q. Are you a smoker? A) Yes, I am a smoker B) I used to smoke C) I’ve never been a smoker An Ox­ford Univer­sity study dis­cov­ered that smok­ing can re­duce your life ex­pectancy by 10 years, as par­tic­i­pants were at an in­creased risk of de­vel­op­ing a se­ri­ous health con­di­tion such as lung dis­ease, heart dis­ease, can­cer or os­teo­poro­sis. But, the good news is you can undo the dam­age by quit­ting now! If you stop smok­ing in your 20s, you can re­verse nearly all the neg­a­tive ef­fects. Quit­ting be­fore you’re 30 will re­duce your risk of dy­ing from a smok­ing re­lated dis­ease by up to 97 per cent and quit­ting be­fore turn­ing 40 re­duces it to 90 per cent. So it’s time to stub it out!
