Our Dewsbury stop smoking advisors have been out and about as part of Stoptober 2016 and had a fantastic day at Dewsbury Hospital recently. They chatted with a number of people (patients, visitors, and hospital staff and volunteers) about the benefits of stopping smoking and how this can be achieved with the support of Yorkshire Smokefree and a number of people have committed to our four week quit programme.
In addition to offering lots of advice and support the team also carried out a number of CO readings. People were amazed (and also concerned) about the high level of carbon monoxide in their body and for a couple of people this breath test was the trigger to get them to say “enough is enough”.
Thanks to everyone who came to chat with us and well done to those pledging to quit. We are here to help you every step of the way – on the phone, face to face and even online via our quit tool and social media channels (on Facebook and Twitter).
To build on the success of this event we are hosting another… Please come along to the next event at Dewsbury hospital on 26th October 2016. We’d love to see you there!View all
