Why can't I stop smoking?
Paul Aveyard, Professor of Behavioural Medicine
Thursday, 07 May 2015, 6pm to 9pm
Lecture Theatre 1, Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, Windmill Road, Oxford. OX3 7LD
Hosted by NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre
Paul Aveyard, Professor of Behavioural Medicine at the University of Oxford’s Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences will look at how our brains respond to cigarette smoking and the way those responses drive continued smoking, sometimes against our will. Almost everyone who smokes believes smoking relieves stress, but Prof Aveyard will discuss the latest research which seems to show the opposite is true. Understanding the way these brain processes work can help us understand how we can help people stop smoking.
