The nicotine in tobacco causes critical changes in the adolescent brain, which have immediate and long-term implications for health and behaviour.

Smoking at a young age can also be associated with panic attacks and anxiety.

If you are a young person and smoke then you could be putting yourself at more risk of respiratory diseases such as wheezing, asthma and COPD.

Smoking Shisha is just as harmful to your health as smoking a cigarette and sharing a mouth piece can spread diseases.

The specialist stop smoking service can support children from the ages of 12, and can provide free Nicotine Replacement Therapy as well as one-to-one support from a trained advisor.
