We all know that tobacco and smoking cigarettes are terrible for you, but did you know that nicotine can actually be good for you? A lot of people believe that nicotine and tobacco are the same thing, after all for a long time they basically were. Nicotine was demonised as the addictive chemical that got people hooked to smoking. But with the introduction nicotine patches and e-cigarettes people can use nicotine without the down sides that are related to smoking....
We all know smoking is terrible for us and those around us. But not many people realize how much worse smoking in the car is for you, compared to normal. It's a common sight to see a driver casually smoking while driving or when you were stopped at a red light. But the laws in the UK were changed in October 2015 making it illegal to smoke in a vehicle with anyone who is under the age of 18. This...
Any news where we see the number of people smoking dropping is normally a good thing. It means the years of information and anti-smoking schemes are working. However there has been a troubling development in the last 10 years, the rich are quitting but the poor aren't. What makes it even worse is that this is having a huge impact on life expectancy as well. For the first time in 50 years the life expectancy gap between the rich and...
E-cigarettes use (also known as vaping) has grown rapidly over the past few years. Estimates say there are currently over 3 million adults using them in the UK. And that number is rising every day. But the use of e-cigs is not confined to the UK alone. It is a phenomenon that has taken the world by storm. A 2014 report by CDC showed that 3.7% of American adults use e-cigs on a regular basis.

We all know how terrible smoking is for you and how it is the largest preventable cause of death in the...

How Much of Your Pay Goes to The Cost of Cigarettes? Ten quid. Tenner. Ten pounds. Seems like a fair bit of money, definitely enough that you would be annoyed if you lost or destroyed it! But then you remember that £10 is the cost of cigarettes for just one pack.  More even if you buy a premium brand. Ten pounds wouldn't amount to much if, say, you were buying only one or two packs of cigarettes a month. But...

Wake up, go to work, eat, watch TV, sleep, repeat… It's easy to get caught up in the humdrum of everyday life. You drag yourself out of bed, get ready for work, punch the clock for 8 hours, come home to a slap-up meal in front of the TV, and then you go back to sleep. And then the cycle repeats itself.
