local wakefield man quits smoking stop smoke

Congratulations, Victor! After smoking for over 50 years he quit the cigarettes for good with the help of Yorkshire Smokefree. Here's his story:

I was 16 when I started smoking, and have now smoked for 50 years, I started smoking when a school friend gave me a couple of cigarettes and I was hooked.

I smoked on average 21-25 cigarettes a day and since I’ve been quit I am able to use the money I’ve saved in more beneficial ways, I accessed my support from the service by telephone and going on websites but also attending face-to-face sessions in Pontefract.  I would rate the support I received from the service as a 10/10 and found them extremely helpful, I used some stop-smoking products to help me quit and apart from the products helping to stay smokefree I had a lot of support from my partner.  The money I have saved is allowing me to treat myself to an extra holiday or two!

When I was a smoker I didn’t like having to go outside for a smoke when in other peoples company. If I could tell myself not to start smoking I would say just think about the amount of money you will waste on your smoking habit.
