Smokers to get free help kicking habit in mass quit drive
2:00pm Saturday 22nd September 2012 in News
FREE nicotine replacement products are being offered to smokers across north east Essex.
Part of the stop smoking drive 'Stoptober', it is the first mass quit attempt launched by the Department of Health, which starts next month.
The offer is being led by Anglian Community Enterprise, which runs the Colchester and Tendring NHS Stop Smoking Service.
The initiative takes smokers through a detailed step-by-step programme to help them quit.
Co-ordinator Sue White said: “We are fully behind this excellent initiative and to give local people the best possible chance of success, we are offering people a ten-week course of nicotine replacement products.”
