Mental health is about how you think, feel and respond to people and situations.
Just like the health of your body can be affected by smoking, so too can your mental health.
There is more and more evidence that smoking can lead to feelings of depression, anger and anxiety.
Most smokers say that having a smoke makes them feel better. For a little while, it can. But this is just an addiction being fed, the brain being tricked into making a feel good chemical called dopamine.
Addiction makes you want to smoke more and more – which costs you not only money but your health. That’s pretty depressing!
