Time to quit smok­ing

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Martin Mere -

PEO­PLE in Lan­cashire are be­ing urged to stop smok­ing this New Year with help from the Quit Squad.

As part of the “Health Harms” cam­paign, Pub­lic Health Eng­land has re­leased a film that en­cour­ages smok­ers to try to quit this month by demon­strat­ing the per­sonal and pub­lic harm to health from ev­ery sin­gle cig­a­rette.

The film fea­tures an ex­per­i­ment to show the high lev­els of can­cer­caus­ing chem­i­cals and tar in­haled by an av­er­age smoker over a month.

Lan­cashire Care NHS Foun­da­tion Trust’s Quit Squad is urg­ing lo­cal smok­ers to con­tact the ser­vice for face-to-face ad­vice and sup­port and treat­ment from spe­cial­ist ad­vis­ers.

Call 0800 3286297, visit www.quit­squad. nhs.uk, or fol­low the Quit Squad on Twit­ter @Lan­cashireCare #Quit­Squad.
