Stoptober in Consett on 28th September

Smokefreelife County Durham are kicking off Stoptober with three events across the county on 28th September.

The Stoptober campaign encourages smokers to give up for the month, based on evidence which shows that quitting for 28 days means you are five times more likely to stop for good. Smokefreelife County Durham are set to give away 1 week’s supply of free nicotine replacement therapy patches in various locations across the county to help assist those wanting to quit this Stoptober.

Stop smoking advisors will be at Consett Market, ASDA Stanley and Durham Marketplace between 10AM and 2PM on 28th September 2018.

After filling out a short assessment with an advisor, potential quitters will receive a free goody bag containing one week’s worth of patches. They will then be referred to their nearest community clinic to receive ongoing support and further treatment. The events also offer the opportunity to test your carbon monoxide levels, which is one of the many toxic chemicals found in tobacco smoke.
