No Smoking Day

March 14, 2018

 Wednesday 14th March, marks the popular National No Smoking Day. The very first No Smoking Day was held back in 1984 and the movement, if you will, has gone from strength to strength. The difference this year? We’re seeing e cigarettes advertised, by the NHS, as a valid cessation device on No Smoking Day materials.

 

National No Smoking Day has been credited with helping a great number of individuals quit smoking over the years. The campaign has evolved over time, with new themes and hashtags being used to get the story, the movement and the motivation going.

 

This year the theme is #TellUsYourWay and it asks smokers to pick a way to quit smoking that works for them and to tell people about it. After all, quitting smoking is a personal thing and what works for one personal may not necessarily work for another. By working out what IS the best option for you, you maximise your chances of successfully giving up the harmful tobacco smoking habit for good.

 

Use thehashtag #TellUsYourWay to post on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter and make a statement about how you're going to quit smoking.

 

Tell your friends and family the day you've chosen to stop smoking and how you're going to do it. Letting other people know your plans helps:

  • you commit to quitting

  • your friends and family support and motivate you

Already stopped? Help others by sharing what worked for you

Everyone's different, which means the way you quit smoking needs to be your choice. It's all about working out what's right for you to increase your chances of quitting for good.

 

You might be:

  • thinking of free Champix or NRT from the pharmacy

  • looking into e-cigarettes

  • planning to go it alone with your own willpower

You can also get expert help from the NHS. Whatever you decide, it helps to plan ahead.
