Smoke? Join Dorset's mass quit event
4:00pm Wednesday 12th September 2012 in News
SMOKERS in Dorset are encouraged to take part in the first-ever national mass quit attempt next month.
You can find out more at the Sovereign Centre in Boscombe on September 19.
It aims to make giving up easier in chunks of 28 days.
Evidence shows that smokers who quit for 28 days are five times more likely to stay stopped.
Quitters can receive a preparation pack, 28-day Quit Calendar and Health and Wealth Wheel.
They will be supported and encouraged through a daily messaging service, inspiration from celebrities, a Stoptober app, motivational texts and Facebook.
Information is available at pharmacies, surgeries, on smokefree.nhs.uk/Stop tober and on the websites for NHS Bournemouth and Poole and NHS Dorset.
