National No Smoking Day

Warwickshire smokers urged to consider the physical and mental benefits of quitting on National No Smoking Day Wednesday 10th March 2021.

Smokers across Warwickshire are being urged to seize the moment and quit the habit to improve not just their physical health but also their mental wellbeing.

New evidence published today shows that smokers who quit for 6 weeks or more are happier than those who carry on smoking.

Reductions in anxiety and depression in those who quit smoking are found to be at least as

great as from taking anti-depressants.

Warwickshire’s stop smoking support service, Quit4Good, is a free 12-week programme providing regular support from expert Stop Smoking Advisors and stop smoking medication (prescription payable) available at a number of Pharmacies and GPs across the county. Find your nearest pharmacy or GP here.

Make today the day for taking that first step on your quit journey, visit www.nhs.uk/smokefree where you can find NHS telephone and online support.

If you are pregnant, access the dedicated Stop Smoking in Pregnancy service at: quit4baby.co.uk, call or text 07917 227 004 or email [email protected]
