Cardiovascular Diseases: These are diseases of the heart, the blood vessels, including veins and arteries. Nicotine increases the cholesterol levels in the blood, these cholesterol and other fats are deposited in the arteries. The arteries therefore become rigid, narrow or blocked.

If you're like many people, you may quit successfully for weeks or even months and then suddenly have a craving that's so strong you feel like you have to give in. Think of the slip up as a mistake. You can continue trying to quit. Remind yourself why you’ve quit and how well you’ve done. Your family and friends are there to support you. Reward yourself. With all of that money, buy something else than cigarettes.
