Free support for Haringey residents to quit smoking this Stoptober
A local health service is offering Haringey residents free support to help them quit smoking this Stoptober.
People are five times more likely to quit smoking for good if they kick the habit for 28 days. By taking part in Stoptober, Haringey residents will enjoy all the benefits of being permanently smoke free.
To help them achieve this, ‘One You Haringey’ is inviting local smokers to attend regular free appointments until they are tobacco free for at least three months.
The service offers a range of free interventions, from group sessions to stop smoking medication.
Beverley Barret, 62, from Haringey, has quit smoking with the help of the service. She said:
“The medication was helpful and easy to use, the sessions were comfortable.
“I felt at home and feel relaxed with my adviser. Thank you.”
Fellow quitter Mark Taylor, 47, said:
“The service in stop smoking was very helpful.
“The adviser was inspirational and helped me stop smoking.”
Last week, Cllr Jason Arthur, Cabinet Member for Finance and Health, visited Beverley, Mark and two other participants who have quit smoking with One You Haringey. He said:
“It was really inspiring to meet with residents who had benefited from the ‘One You’ smoking cessation service.
“There is a lot of evidence to show that quitting smoking can radically improve both your physical and mental health.
“As a Council, we want our residents to live healthy, fulfilling lives so I would encourage anyone looking to stop one and for all to sign up to the One You service – it’s free and easy to access!”
