Quit4Good on National No Smoking Day – Wednesday 14 March 2018

Warwickshire smokers are being urged to ‘Quit4Good’ on No Smoking Day this Wednesday (14 March) to benefit their health – and their wallet.

No Smoking Day aims to both inspire smokers to quit and provide them with the resources to do so. The theme for 2018 is #TellUsYourWay’, which encourages smokers to share how they curbed their addiction. Thousands of smokers choose this day as the day they start to stop smoking. Making the decision to become smoke free will benefit you and your family now and in the future, and there is support available to help you in Warwickshire.

Warwickshire’s stop smoking support service, ‘Quit4Good’ is a free 12 week programme providing regular support from expert Stop Smoking Advisors and stop smoking medication (prescription payable) available at a number of Pharmacies and GPs across the county. Alternatively smokers can choose to quit online with the support of a Stop Smoking Advisor through the national smokefree online service.

Pregnant smokers who want to “Quit4Baby” can get help from a Specialist Stop Smoking in Pregnancy Advisor who can visit them at home, or at one of their clinics or meet at a local community venue if you would prefer. More information is available on the quit4good.co.uk website.

Cllr Les Caborn, Warwickshire County Council’s Portfolio Holder for Health, said: “Stopping smoking is the best thing you can do to improve your health. It’s also good for your wallet, with the average smoker saving £3,000 per year after quitting. The Quit4Good service has helped thousands of smokers in Warwickshire to become smoke free. Research has shown that you are 4 times more likely to stop smoking for good if you sign up to the Quit4Good 12 week programme.”
