New Year - Key Time to Quit Smoking
Research shows that most smokers get motivated to quit very suddenly, spurred into action by a specific event or milestone, such as New Year's resolution, getting fit, No Smoking Day, pregnancy, becoming a grandparent, illness or going into hospital. Around seven million people in this country will make a New Year's resolution to improve an aspect of their health - and stopping smoking is one of the most popular ones.
North Yorkshire Stop Smoking Service NHS has new stop smoking clinic courses starting in January 2012.
Appointments are either one-to-one or group sessions and take place weekly for a minimum of seven weeks. The courses are held in health- and community centres across North Yorkshire and York. Just phone the stop smoking service on 0300 303 1603 during normal office hours to find out more or to book a place. You are four times more likely to quit successfully with NHS treatment and support than going it alone.
