National No Smoking Day

March 8, 2017   //   No Comments

No Smoking Day has been running since Ash Wednesday in 1983, when it was called Quit for the Day.   The campaign is re-designed every year to help spur smokers into action.  The mission is to appeal to smokers of all types – whatever their age, sex or social class.  The campaign publicises and explains the help that smokers can get when they want to stop.

The message of the day is that No Smoking Day is a great opportunity to stop smoking, smokers can get help when they want to stop and that there are health and other benefits to stopping smoking.
