Stoptober: quit smoking and breathe

Stopping smoking is one of the best things you'll ever do for your health. When you stop, you give your lungs the chance to repair and you'll be able to breathe easier. There are lots of other benefits too - and they start almost immediately. Quit Right are once again helping people to quit this year as part of the Stoptober campaign. By getting the right help and support you are four times more likely to quit than if you were to do it alone. We've helped close to 1,500 people quit last year and we want to help even more people for the upcoming year. Support is free and we'll be with you every step of the way, providing behavioural support as well as stop smoking aids such as patches, gums and sprays. We also provide e-cigarettes and offer advice and guidance on using them. Speak to our friendly team today on 0207 882 8230 or email clinicbookings@qmul.ac.uk'. It's never too late to quit, so join in this Stoptober. Let's do this!
