Stop smoking help available in Norwich store tomorrow
People wanting help to stop smoking can get some advice and support at the Asda store in Hellesdon tomorrow.
One of NHS Norfolk's Stop Smoking Services will be based at the supermarket between 9am and 5pm, looking to add to the 3,872 people who have successfully quit smoking through the service since April 2010.
Smoking kills 2,000 people in Norfolk every year and the team will be handing out information leaflets detailing the support on offer, such as one-to-one sessions and nicotine replacement therapy, so that people can contact the service in their own time or pass the information on to a smoker.
Jennie Pusey, NHS Norfolk's Stop Smoking Service commissioning manager, added that people should remember how much money cigarettes cost. She said: 'More than ever before, giving up smoking makes sense, both in terms of your health and your purse.
'Research has shown that people who are helped by face to face advisors are likely to tell up to 17 friends, colleagues and family members about what they have heard and you are four times more likely to quit successfully with our help.'
