Over 10 million people in the UK still smoke, and around 100,000 die every year from smoking-related causes. That’s 100,000 deaths too many!
The No Smoking Campaign is run by the British Heart Foundation (BHF), and helps smokers who want to quit by creating a supportive environment, and by highlighting the many sources of help and advice available.
The British Heart Foundation's vision is to reduce tobacco related illnesses and deaths and their mission is to support smokers who want to stop by providing an opportunity to do so, and highlighting the effective help that is available.
Why Quit Smoking?
There are many reasons why it's a good idea to stop smoking. Over time your health deteriorates and your wallet feels the burn too. Even though quitting won't be the easiest thing you'll ever do, it will be up there with the best.
Smokers come from all walks of life, each with their own reasons for wanting to quit. For some it's part of a lifestyle change; the be healthier and fitter. For others, it's more about how their smoking affects the people around them; their family and little ones.
Although its No Smoking Day on March 9th, ANY DAY is a good day to QUIT smoking. Whatever the reason, thinking carefully about your motivation and reminding yourself during your quit, can really help you through the tough times.
There is tonnes of help, support and information to give up for good, visit the website at: https://nosmokingday.org.uk/.
