“Everyone knows smoking is bad for you, everyone knows people should stop and they say it is all for your benefit.
What they don’t say is that when you stop smoking it might affect your health, issues could arise when you stop smoking especially long-term smokers.
But this should not deter you from giving up, and this next segment we give you includes what issues can arise but also where to go to get help to stop smoking and also some alternative views.”
We spoke to Dr Roy Robertson a doctor of many years from Edinburgh and asked him “do people really want to stop smoking”
