Helping to serve your community, Chris Evans MP Help Shape Britains Progressive Future

16th August 2016 - ‘Quit smoking to help avoid serious health problems’ says Islwyn MP

‘Quit smoking to help avoid serious health problems’ says Islwyn MPIslwyn MP Chris Evans has thrown his support behind Stop Smoking Wales’ ‘Don’t be the one’ campaign which calls on people to quit smoking and avoid dying of a smoking related disease after attending a local wellbeing information stall.

According to Stop Smoking Wales, which is a free NHS Wales service, one in every two long term smokers will die of a smoking related disease. Quitting smoking is the first step towards healing any damage caused.

Quitting smoking can drastically improve health but can have other practical benefits such as preventing the high cost of addictive smoking, causing children and other non-smoking family members to become passive smokers, and clearing up the smell of smoking.

Information and advice can be found online at www.stopsmokingwales.com, in person at local community centres, GP surgeries, community health clinics and halls, and by phone on 0800 085 2219.

Mr Evans said: ‘To quit smoking is often very difficult but with the right support and advice, such as that given by Stop Smoking Wales, chances of being successful are drastically improved.

‘It is never too soon to quit smoking so I would encourage any of my constituents who are smokers to think of their health and try to quit, even if they have tried in the past and failed, and to get in touch with Stop Smoking Wales today.’
