Peterborough smokers urged to stop smoking for No Smoking Day

Smokers in Peterborough are urged to take the first step in giving up cigarettes for good on No Smoking Day which will take place on the 13th March.
While studies show that two-thirds of smokers want to stop, nearly one in five UK adults continue to smoke.

Healthy Peterborough, providers of stop smoking services in Peterborough run by Solutions 4 Health, will be at Peterborough Town Hall on No Smoking Day and at Serpntine Green in Hampton on the 14th March to help smokers choose the day they start to stop. Specialist stop smoking advisors will be on hand to offer support and FREE Carbon Monoxide tests from their mobile clinic.

Elaine Wiggins, Stop Smoking Service Lead at Healthy Peterborough said “No Smoking Day is the perfect time to motivate people to stop smoking. Healthy Peterborough provides a free, local, tailor made service to Peterborough residents using both face to face clinics, telephone support and online information.”

“As smoking remains one of the leading causes of premature death in Peterborough and the UK, providing free support to smokers can help to reduce the risk of people developing smoking related illnesses.”

“With support, smokers are more likely to succeed in stopping smoking for good. That is why Healthy Peterborough is regularly out and about in the city, not just on No Smoking Day, educating smokers on the range of local services and resources available to them.”

 

Healthy Peterborough offers free support to stop smoking online, by telephone or in person.
