Spreading the no smoking message

13th March 2017

Stop smoking experts gave free support to staff and visitors to Kingsgate House in Stockport to mark No Smoking Day.

The team from ABL Health’s wellness service, part of the Healthy Stockport family, spent time talking to people about the benefits of quitting. They are available all year round to help residents stop smoking.

Cllr Tom McGee, Stockport Council’s Executive Member for Health said; “If you are a smoker, quitting is the single best thing you can do for your health and wealth. With the cost of smoking rising every year there is never a better time to stop smoking. If you are thinking of quitting I would urge you to access the support available as you are much more likely to be successful with expert support than going it alone.”

The wellbeing service offers advice and support for people wanting to make positive lifestyle changes, such as losing weight, stopping smoking or to generally feel better and more in control.
