As today is No Smoking Day we thought you'd like to find out why others are kicking the habit...

If you're a smoker and you fancy stopping smoking to halt skin damage, improve your sex life or to boost fertility you'll be in good company.

We're not here to preach but the results of a recent survey from an online quit smoking resource makes for interesting and inspirational reading.

QuitFullstop.co.uk surveyed 2,000 of it's members (an even split of men and women) to find out why they were quitting with following results:

1. 40% of women are quitting for fears that long-term smoking will damage their skin and cause premature ageing

2. 55% of men believe that quitting smoking will help to either reverse or prevent ageing

3. 25% of men have given up after having being diagnosed with some form of erectile dysfunction

4. 10% of men, and 45% of women say they want to quit because they are looking to conceive

A spokesperson from the popular quit smoking resource said, "More and more men and women are quitting smoking for fears that they will suffer long-term skin damage. Smoking can cause facial wrinkles because it ages the skin by eating away at proteins, thereby restricting blood flow. This results in dry, leathery and wrinkled skin around the lips and eyes."

"Studies have shown that quitting smoking can increase a couple's chances of conceiving. This is due to changes that happen in the womb and improved mobility of sperm. Quitting also boosts the success rate of IVF treatment and lowers the risk of a miscarriage."
