Success for the ‘I Quit’ Programme
We have had a great response to Creative Support’s ‘I Quit’ programme, with 23 service users and 50 members of staff giving up smoking so far and receiving a reward of £130 each, with many more on the way to being smoke free. A member of staff in Head Office recently quit smoking, ‘I was smoking 20 a day but I quit with lozenges and support from Pat Wilson (Head Office’s Smoking Cessation Officer). The best thing about giving up is that I don’t have to stand outside in the cold and the rain anymore!!!’
Have a look on www.quit.org.uk or www.nhs.uk/smokefree and think of all the ways you could spend the money you save and that well-earned £130 reward! If you would like to sign up to the scheme, please contact Suzanne Morton at Head Office for a form.
