In East Sussex around 1,000 people die every year from smoking related diseases, and even more people live with ill-health and disability caused by smoking.
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) one of the diseases caused by smoking, kills around 45 people every day England:- that’s 16,500 people a year.
Smoking leads to a build-up of fatty deposits clogging our arteries and blocking the flow of blood to vital organs, causing heart attacks and strokes.
But it’s never too late to quit smoking, and reverse its effects.
