Long term conditions and smoking
When you have a long term condition and smoke, your organs have to work extra hard to make sure that clean blood and oxygen is pumped around your body.
Smoking puts you under significant risk of developing heart disease and other life-threatening illnesses.
Smoking can damage every part of your body and is linked to many kinds of cancers such as lung, stomach and kidney, and chronic diseases such as asthma. Smoking damages your heart and blood circulation increasing your risk of developing conditions such as coronary heart disease, heart attack and stroke.
24 hours after you stop smoking, your chances of having an attack decreases.
If you have a long term condition that affects your day-to-day life, stopping smoking is the best thing you could do for your health.
