Stopping smoking can improve your mental health

In 2014 a meta-analysis reported that quitting smoking is associated with improvements in mental health.

The report showed that over 160,000 people who quit smoking reported reduced anxiety, reduced depression, improved mood and better quality of life.

One reason for this is nicotine dependency and withdrawal cravings that happen when the nicotine levels in the body drop forcing the smoker to have another cigarette.

This can be reduced over time helping vapers or dual users to cut down before quitting completely.
