No Smoking Day is Wednesday 08 March 2017. This is the UK’s foremost Health awareness campaign and has helped many stop smoking. The theme this year is 'Proud to be a Quitter'.
Smokers in Northern Ireland are being urged to take the first step in giving up cigarettes for good on No Smoking Day which takes place on Wednesday 09 March.
While studies show that two-thirds of smokers want to quit, nearly one in five UK adults continue to smoke, including 23%in Northern Ireland.
This year’s No Smoking Day theme is ‘Proud to be a Quitter. In life we’re told never to give up, to keep going – but when it comes to smoking, being a ‘Quitter’ is a good thing. We’re using inspirational stories of ex-smokers to highlight the life-changing benefits of quitting.
“With support, smokers are more likely to succeed in their quit attempt. That is why BHSCT Smoking Cessation Service –part of the Health Improvement Team, will be out in force on No Smoking Day, educating smokers on the range of local services and resources available to them.”
