Smoking makes problems caused by diabetes much worse. Here are some tips to quit smoking for good.
Smoking makes problems caused by diabetes much worse. It damages your blood vessels, decreases blood flow to your legs and feet, and increases your risk of having a heart attack. Smoking also causes sexual impotence.
But it is never too late to stop smoking. If you stop now, your body will start to repair itself.
It may be difficult, but it is not impossible to stop smoking even if you have smoked for many years. Many smokers have tried and succeeded in stopping. So, give yourself a chance. Stop smoking today!
Smoking cessation services are available in various polyclinics, hospitals, pharmacies and other private centres. If you need help to quit, get an appointment to see a smoking cessation consultant at any of these services. You can also call Quitline (1800–438 2000).
