No Smoking Day 13 March 2024

Better Health Smoke Free – Get free support to quit smoking this month on No Smoking Day 13/02/2024

Quitting smoking is the best thing you can do for your health.

The 40th anniversary of No Smoking Day, a time for us to unite and offer encouragement and support to those on their quitting journey, is swiftly
approaching on 13 March.
There are over 5.3 million adults in England who still smoke, and smoking remains the single largest preventable cause of death in England. In fact, up to
two in three smokers will die as a result of long-term smoking.
Almost every minute of every day someone is admitted to hospital in England with a smoking-related disease and in 2022-23, there were an estimated
400,000 hospital admissions in England due to smoking and one in four hospital patients is a smoker. Despite the clear health risks of smoking, it’s
estimated that nearly 50 million cigarettes are smoked every day in England – around nine cigarettes a day per smoker.
However, smoking rates have reduced considerably since the first year of No Smoking Day 40 years ago and this year’s No Smoking Day campaign aims
to continue this pattern and encourage people to quit by offering free proven NHS resources and advice.
Be part of the change and help build a smokefree generation. For free support to quit smoking, search smokefree
