For your family?

Protect your family from secondhand smoke

More than 80% of secondhand smoke is invisible and odourless, so no matter how careful you think you’re being, your family still breathes in the harmful poisons. This puts them at risk of meningitis, cancer, bronchitis and pneumonia.

That’s why the law has changed. From the 1st October 2015, it became illegal to smoke (including roll-ups, cigars and pipes) in vehicles with someone under 18 present; both the driver and passenger could be fined £50.

With our help and support you can quit smoking for good.

It’s not just about the physical effects smoking has grandparenton your family

Many children worry that their mum or dad will die because they smoke. Not only that, but if you smoke, your children are three times more likely to smoke when they grow up. By quitting, your children will be less likely to take up smoking. Children exposed to a smoky atmosphere are more likely to suffer from breathing problems, allergies and chest infections. By not smoking, you protect the health of those close to you.

When you are ready, see our tips on preparing yourself to quit.
