  • Stopping smoking saves money. If you smoke 20 a day, you can save 3000 pounds in a year!
  • Stopping smoking has many immediate and long term health benefits. Within 24 hours of stopping smoking carbon monoxide is eliminated from the body. People who breathe second hand smoke are at risk of many of the same diseases as smokers, for example heart disease and cancer
  • Free friendly NHS support is availablefrom Stop Smoking Wales (tel 0800 085 2219) and your local community pharmacy .If you have enough people who want to quit at your setting, a specialistadvisor may be able to work with the group. You are four times more likelyto stop smoking using an NHS service than quitting alone.
