" I cannot thank you enough. I haven't smoked since September 1st and it hasn't been difficult. In the past when I tried to quit I felt like a drug addict with horrible withdrawal symptoms.
Thankfully, I did not experience that this time. Thanks again Alan, Deidrie "
Facts About Smoking and Health Issues
Tobacco smoking is the largest cause of ill health and premature deaths in the U.K.
Smoking claims well over 120,000 lives per year.
It is the cause of one-third of ALL cancer deaths (40,000 and 82% being lung cancer).
Below is a list I have produced to highlight the main deadly and strange ingredients a cigarette contains.
There are, in fact, over 600 ingredients in cigarettes ranging from the bizarre to the deadly.
The main ones only are listed below:
- Formaldehyde - used for embalming dead bodies
- Ammonia - household bleach
- Acetone - paint stripper
- Cadmium - used in batteries
- Aluminium - metal linked with Alzheimer's disease
- Hydrochloric acid - industrial agent
- Ethanol - used in antifreeze
- Furfural - industrial alcohol
- Maltol - strong alcohol
- Para-methoxycinnamaldehyde - slug pellets
- Nicotine - highly toxic nerve poison. A dosage of fifty-thousandths of a gram will kill a person

Just a few lines to thank Alan for your help to stop smoking. It has been over 5 weeks now and I haven't smoked or felt like a cigarette. I am also delighted that I have not put on any weight - that was one of my biggest fears. Many Thanks
I came to see you in October 10 years ago. I smoked one cigarette outside your office before I came in and I have not smoked a cigarette since. Even the very thought of it makes me gag. I have absolutely no urge to smoke. Fabulous.
