Doug from Rotherham came to the service wanting to stop smoking for his health. He’s done really well and is quite rightly very proud of his achievement. He also credits the service with helping him understand more about the smoking habit and in particular highlighting the wide range of health conditions which smoking is linked to.
“Before I came to the service I knew about the link with smoking and lung cancer, but if I had known the other smoking hazards at the same time I would have stopped sooner. It would be good to see this promoted more about why people need to quit, maybe bringing back some of the TV adverts! I’m so happy to have stopped smoking and I’m glad I came to the service, which has been very encouraging and positive!”
