If you don’t think you will ever want to stop smoking, think about switching to vaping. An e-cigarette is 95% safer than smoking, because you don’t breathe in any tar or carbon monoxide and switching completely brings health gains. The advisors will also tell you about licensed stop smoking products available to you.
