I quit because I want to improve my health
Denise had been smoking for over 47 years, from the age of nine. She grew up smoking and now suffers from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and frequent chest infections. After being admitted to hospital, Denise quit smoking for 4 weeks. Denise decided to give it another go with the support of One You Surrey. Here's what she had to say about the support she received:
"I do feel much better, and my skin looks a nice healthy colour, and my breathing is improved. I feel happy with what I have achieved with the support of the clinic, and more positive and relaxed and feel it is the best thing I have done for myself. I have a bit more energy with my day-to-day life and when I look after my young grandchildren."
