Smokers in Oxfordshire are urged to take the first step in giving up cigarettes for good on No Smoking Day which will take place on the 13th March.
While studies show that two-thirds of smokers want to stop, nearly one in five UK adults continue to smoke.
SmokeFreeLife, providers of stop smoking services in Oxfordshire run by Solutions 4 Health, will be in Bonn Square between 10am and 4pm on No Smoking Day to help smokers make the 13th March the day they start to stop. Specialist stop smoking advisors will be on hand to offer support and FREE Carbon Monoxide tests from their mobile clinic.
Elizabeth West, Stop Smoking Service Manager at SmokeFreeLife said “No Smoking Day is the perfect time to motivate people to stop smoking. SmokeFreeLife provides a free, local, tailor made service to Oxfordshire residents using both face to face clinics, telephone support and online information.”
“As smoking remains one of the leading causes of premature death in Oxfordshire and the UK, providing free support to smokers can help to reduce the risk of people developing smoking related illnesses.”
“With support, smokers are more likely to succeed in stopping smoking for good. That is why SmokeFreeLife Oxfordshire is regularly out and about in the county, not just on No Smoking Day, educating smokers on the range of local services and resources available to them.”
SmokeFreeLife offers free support to stop smoking online, by telephone or in person.
