No Smoking Day – 9 March 2016
No Smoking Day
Wednesday 9 March 2016
Every year The British Heart Foundation launch “No Smoking Day”. This year it is on Wednesday 9 March 2016.
No Smoking Day is just around the corner so an ideal opportunity to prepare in advance and purchase your e-cigarettes to help you on the big day.
The advantages and obvious health benefits of quitting smoking can be seen after just 24 hours. After 24 hours your lungs start cleaning out the tar and after only 3-9 months your lungs will have up to 10% more oxygen.
The first ever No Smoking Day was held in 1984 on Ash Wednesday and it now occurs each year on the second Wednesday in March.
No Smoking Day - 9 March 2016
Some research conducted back in 2009 found that 1 in 10 smokers do quit on No Smoking Day.
Dr Mike Knapton, a British Heart Foundation Associate Medical Director, said:
"We’re asking smokers to mark Wednesday 9 March on their calendars to take the first step towards a smoke-free life.”
In addition to the obvious health problems smoking can cause there is also a
huge issue with both oral and dental health.
Dr Mike Knapton went on to say:
“By quitting smoking you can stop or even reverse the effects on your oral health."
The British Heart Foundation are asking all dental health professionals to actively encourage their patients to quit smoking and to raise awareness of the dental and oral problems they could incur if they continue. They have also been asked to promote aids such as e-cigarettes.
