Stopping Smoking for Ramadan
Published at 23 May, 2016.
Will you be observing Ramadan this year? Did you know that smoking during fasting hours is forbidden? Ramadan offers you a great opportunity to make some healthy changes, and this includes stopping smoking. But instead of avoiding cigarettes only through fasting hours why not try to kick the habit for good?
If you are wondering how you will get through the first few days of fasting without cigarettes then we are here to help. We can prepare you for the challenge with quit products that will help you to better cope with cravings and withdrawal. And remember, fasting alone is hard but doing it at the same time as nicotine withdrawal is even harder.
Our quit advisors are all NHS trained and have worked with thousands of Muslims throughout Yorkshire, both before and during Ramadan and throughout the rest of the year. We provide long term support to people just like you, who want to quit for both faith and health reasons. Let’s work together this year and make Ramadan 2016 the year you stop smoking all together.
You can contact us in various ways. Our telephone support service is FREE from landlines on 0800 612 0011 and open as follows:
If you prefer to call us on a mobile the number is 0330 660 1166 and this is free from most mobiles.
We also offer face-to-face appointments at one of our many stop smoking clinics throughout Sheffield, Wakefield, Calderdale, Kirklees, Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham. You can arrange an appointment via the telephone numbers above, or pop in and speak to one of our team.
Clinics can be viewed by Yorkshire Smokefree Clinics.
Remember, we are here to support you before, during and after Ramadan.
