Among current smokers, 65% want to stop smoking. The New Year is the perfect time to make a change, and our Yorkshire Smokefree service is here to help.
Of the 6.1 million smokers in England, six in 10 want to quit but many try to quit using willpower alone despite this being the least effective method. Yorkshire Smokefree can help in lots of different ways depending on your preference and what’s available in your area. They offer telephone support, face to face sessions, and a unique online quit programme.
Yorkshire Smokefree has also launched a free January Bootcamp on Facebook, which is available for anyone looking for additional support or guidance on their stop smoking journey. With handy tips and tricks, and motivational quotes to help you keep going, it’s perfect for those looking to go smokefree in 2019.
There are many reasons to quit smoking. Smoking damages your heart and your blood circulation, increasing the risk of conditions such as coronary heart disease, heart attack, stroke. But just one year after quitting the risk of heart attack is halved, and within two years, the risk of stroke is reduced to that of a non-smoker.
Yorkshire Smokefree’s services are free, friendly and flexible and you will always have access to specialist advisors who have helped thousands of people to go smokefree.
Yorkshire Smokefree is available in Calderdale, Barnsley, Wakefield, Doncaster and Sheffield. Get in touch with the service on 0800 612 0011 (free from landlines) and 0330 660 1166 (free from most mobiles), or visit www.yorkshiresmokefree.nhs.uk
