We can help you quit, your way – that’s the message from Yorkshire Smokefree to smokers in the Wakefield area thinking of quitting in the New Year.
Yorkshire Smokefree, which is run by South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, makes it even easier for smokers to quit for good with a range of free support that smokers can ‘pick and mix’ to suit their lifestyles.
Smoking is the single biggest cause of preventable death in Wakefield and across the UK. Each year smoking related illnesses result in over 80,000 deaths.
To encourage people to quit, Yorkshire Smokefree is offering smokers in Wakefield the choice of telephone, face to face and online advice using a new online support programme. Smokers can now access expert support 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Sandra Wilson, Yorkshire Smokefree Wakefield service manager, said, “The New Year is a great opportunity to make a resolution and quit smoking for good. We can help you stick to it and our expert advisors have some great tips and advice to help you keep on track.
“We know it’s hard to quit and people often say they need something to keep their hands busy. We’ve got some great ideas to help you with this – just get in touch with one of our friendly, helpful advisors.”
Yorkshire Smokefree’s online support programme also allows quitters to create their own personal plans, set a quit date and chat online with qualified advisors.
The Wakefield Quit Shop, located on Northgate in the town centre, is in a convenient location and provides face to face support from qualified advisors who have already helped thousands of people across the region to successfully stop smoking.
