Each day 50 Australians needlessly die of smoking related diseases.
Quitting before the age of 30 reduces your risk of lung cancer by 90% compared to someone who continues to smoke throughout their life.
After 15 years of not smoking, your stroke risk has reduced to close to that of a person who has never smoked and within 2-5 years of quitting, your risk of getting a heart attack and stroke also drops significantly.
Help is available from your local GP, your pharmacist and the Quitline.

One of my favourite ways of relaxing is visiting the sea. Each time I go to the beach I always take 10 deep breaths. Not only does it allow me to fully expand my lungs with oxygen and the other great elements that sea air has to offer such as iodine and magnesium, but it also allows me to relax and unwind.
We’re so lucky to have such great amenities in Australia, so when you’re at the beach next time, why not give it a try.
Sometimes, giving a girl flowers is not the best thing especially if they have hay fever 🌺
Did you know that nearly 1 in 5 Australians suffer from hay fever at some point in their lives. It is more common if there is a family history of allergies, especially asthma or eczema. Symptoms include sneezing, runny nose or itchy eyes.
Treatment usually takes the form of anti-histamine tablets that can be brought from the chemist. However always seek advice from your doctor if you are concerned.
