Kick the habit this No Smoking Day

Posted in Smoking 07 Mar, 2011

Are you a smoker? If you are then you might be interested to know that this Wednesday (March 9th) is national No Smoking Day.

Organisers of the event are hoping than many thousands of people will take the day as an opportunity to change their lives and give up the habit. So why not become one of them?

By giving up smoking, you’ll reduce your chances of suffering common health problems like lung cancer dramatically. You’ll also improve the health of the people around you by reducing the amount of second-hand smoke they have to breathe into their lungs. Did you know children are among those most vulnerable to passive smoking?

In the UK one fifth of us smoke and this is damaging both our own health and that of our country’s younger generation, but it really doesn’t have to be this way. Surveys show that deep down 70% of smokers want to give up their habit so what are you waiting for? Ask your doctor for advice about medications like Champix and start the quitting process!
