Smokers in Hounslow  proud to be quitters on No Smoking Day

A cigarette being snapped

The trust's Hounslow Stop Smoking Service are encouraging smokers to ‘be proud to be a quitter’ by pledging to stop smoking on national No Smoking Day, Wednesday 11 March 2015.

Over 10 million people in the UK still smoke, and around 100,000 die every year from smoking-related causes. The British Heart Foundation’s annual campaign inspires and helps smokers who want to quit. This year, over one million smokers are expected to use No Smoking Day to quit.

The team from Hounslow stop smoking services will be encouraging smokers to take the first step in their efforts to quit smoking and to be proud to be a quitter and to break the habit. The team will be holding information stands in venues across Hounslow to promote ‘No Smoking Day’.

Minel Shah, Hounslow stop smoking lead explains:  “Sadly smoking is still one of the biggest causes of preventable deaths in Hounslow. We know that the majority of smokers do want to quit, however it can be hard to do without the right help and support.No Smoking Day is the perfect opportunity to inspire smokers in Hounslow to quit for good. With support, smokers are more likely to succeed in their quit attempt. That is why Hounslow Stop Smoking Service will be out in force on No Smoking Day, educating smokers on the range of local services and resources available to them.”
