Get help to quit smoking

It’s never too late to quit smoking.

That’s the message from South Wales Police Federation chair Steve Treharne ahead of National No Smoking Day tomorrow (8 March).

Police Mutual, which provides financial services and welfare support to the police service, has produced a wellbeing guide for the awareness day to support and encourage people to give up.

The free online guide includes tips on stopping smoking, outlines the health benefits of giving up and the financial benefits as well.

Steve said: “No Smoking Day takes place this year on 8 March – but you can give up any day of the year.

“It’s never too late to quit and feel the health benefits, such as having more energy and finding breathing easier.

“There are financial benefits too with the average smoker estimated to save around £2,000 a year by not smoking.

“There’s no doubt that giving up smoking is hard, which is why the tips in this wellbeing guide from Police Mutual could you find a route to quitting for good.”
