Healthworks supports No Smoking Day

No Smoking Day is on Wednesday the 9 March 2016. This national campaign aims to help smokers who want to quit the habit.

 

No Smoking Day

This year’s theme is ‘Be Proud to be a Quitter’, highlighting that stopping smoking is something that people can be proud of. In life we’re told never to give up – but when it comes to smoking, being a ‘Quitter’ is a good thing.

Each year No Smoking Day helps hundreds of thousands of smokers to quit smoking and begin a new healthier lifestyle. This year the Newcastle Stop Smoking Service will be out and about on the Day, promoting the free support they offer to smokers who wish to quit.

A Health Bus will tour several city sites including the Civic Centre (9.30am), Newcastle Shopping Park at Byker (10.30am), Quorum Business Park (12 noon), Northumbria University (2pm) and Elswick Road shops (3.30pm). Smokers are encouraged to drop in to see one of the Specialist Stop Smoking Advisors to find out more. Advisors will also be on hand at the Grainger Market between 10.30 am and 1pm and inside Eldon Square shopping centre all afternoon on the Day. For those not able to attend on the Day the Stop Smoking Service which is provided by Lifeline for Newcastle City Council, can be contacted on 0191 269 1103 or Email stopsmoking.newcastle@lifeline.org.uk or on Twitter @Quit_Newcastle.

Service Manager Rachel Nichol commented; “We hope that many more Newcastle residents will use No Smoking Day to kick start their quit attempt. We know that anyone trying to quit with our support is four times more likely to stop smoking long term than if they go it alone, and would be pleased to see anyone wishing quit to drop into the health bus or any of our stalls this No Smoking Day”.

In addition to Lifeline Stop Smoking Advisors, support for those wishing to quit, is also available at many local pharmacies, some GPs, community settings and by text and email at https://quitnow.smokefree.nhs.uk/ All the support offered is confidential, free and friendly and open to anyone working living in or working in the city
