This year’s No Smoking Day, which is part of an initiative provided by the British Heart Foundation, takes place on Wednesday 12 March. This year the theme is ‘V for Victory’ which aims to encourage people to win the fight against smoking.

To help smokers on the road to victory, advisers from Calderdale’s stop smoking service will be at an information stand in the entrance of Calderdale Royal Hospital on No Smoking Day (12 March) between 10.00 – 3.00pm. Local people are invited to come along and find out what help is available to support them quit for good.

Debbie Hardwick, stop smoking specialist at Calderdale stop smoking service said, “We really want to encourage people in Calderdale to come along to our information stall to get help and support on successfully quitting. We know that people want to quit, but find it hard, that’s why we’re on hand to help. People are four times more likely to quit smoking for good with expert advice from the specialist service.

“Quitting smoking is the single best thing people can do for their health and No Smoking Day is a great opportunity for people to join thousands of other quitters in attempting to give up smoking for good.”

Calderdale’s specialist NHS stop smoking service provides tailored and flexible support with friendly advisors who have experience in helping many people to go smoke-free.
