Shropshire smokers to get ready for battle on No Smoking Day

Smokers in Shropshire are being urged to prepare for battle and attempt to give up cigarettes for good on No Smoking Day which takes place on Wednesday 12 March 2014.

One in five UK adults smoke, including 17% in Shropshire. But studies show around two thirds of smokers want to quit.

This year’s No Smoking Day has a ‘V for Victory’ theme which is set to inspire hundreds of thousands of smokers to win the fight against cigarettes.

The campaign will help smokers on the road to victory, providing information, support and encouragement to put together a personal battle plan so that they are in the best possible position to make a successful quit attempt on the day.

Here at the DENTAL SPA we will be supporting No Smoking Day to inspire quitters and send them on the road to victory.

Roy Dixon, our Clinical Director said “No Smoking Day is a great opportunity for us to encourage and support smokers in Shrewsbury to quit alongside hundreds of thousands of other people across the UK.

“We know that quitting isn’t easy but we want to reassure smokers that support is available to them and that they can win the battle against cigarettes.

“There’s a much higher chance of succeeding with support and this is why we are spreading the word to smokers about the range of services and resources which are locally available to them. Our activity is crucial to helping smokers on the road to victory and towards a healthier and wealthier smoke-free life.”

The annual campaign is run by the British Heart Foundation (BHF) and encouraged one million smokers to make a quit attempt last year.

Dr Mike Knapton, Associate Medical Director at the BHF, said: “Our ‘V for Victory’ message is set to inspire smokers to win the battle against cigarettes even if they’ve already attempted to quit in the past.

“Quitting smoking is the single best thing people can do for their health and we want to arm smokers with information and support that will send them on the road to victory. We’re encouraging smokers to mark Wednesday 12 March in their diary to join hundreds of thousands of other quitters in attempting to stub out cigarettes for good.”
