Get rid of nicotine, your body will be thankful

Most smokers would like to quit smoking, but they are afraid of relapse. Are you one of them?

Even occasional smoking poses a health risk, and having a smoke is not an option! Nicotine, tar and carbon monoxide are a fatal combination, and approximately 5,000 people die every year in Finland from diseases related to the illnesses caused by them. Surely you do not want to be one of them?

Prepare for battle

When you are considering reducing smoking or you have decided to quit smoking, you should tell the people close to you. You should also tell them what kind of support you need from them. You should think about situations that test your decision to quit smoking and make a plan for tackling these incentives.


This is how you stay smoke-free

  1. List the benefits of quitting.
  2. Draft a schedule for quitting and select the methods.
  3. Wash the cigarette smoke off your clothes.
  4. Set aside the money you save. Start a travel fund.
  5. Go to places where smoking is not allowed.
