Quit Your Way, Today! Roadshow

The Greenwich Stop Smoking Service in partnership with Charlton Athletic Community Trust are launching a brand new roadshow on January 23rd, encouraging residents of the borough to ‘Quit Your Way, Today!’ The roadshow will tour around the Royal borough for 7 weeks, visiting high footfall areas such as high streets and supermarkets, and offer dedicated 1-1 stop smoking support.

With so many different ways to stop smoking now, there’s never been a better time to quit. The Greenwich Stop Smoking Service are here to help you every step of the way, no matter how many times you’ve tried to stop before. Whether you prefer to quit with the help of drop-in centres, stop smoking medications or e-cigarettes, we’re here to support you with whatever you choose.

There are lots of benefits to quitting, including reducing your risk of developing smoking related illnesses, having a bit more cash, protecting those around you from secondhand smoke, improving your breathing and general fitness, and even your appearance – your skin will be brighter and your teeth will be easier to keep white!

There will be lung age tests available, carbon monoxide readings and free, local support from a team of trained stop smoking advisors. You’re 4 times more likely to quit with support, so the friendly advisors will be on hand to help you choose your best way to stop smoking.

If you are pregnant or a new mum, you’ll know that stopping smoking is the best thing you can do for you and your baby. Ask our friendly team about the specialist stop smoking support you can find at some of our Children’s Centres and at our stop smoking clinics in Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

The roadshow will be at the following locations:

Tuesdays, Sainsbury’s, Charlton, 10am-5pm

Wednesdays, Asda, Charlton, 10am-5pm

Thursdays, Woolwich Market, 10am-5pm

Fridays, Passey Place, Eltham, 10am-5pm

Saturdays, General Gordon Square, Woolwich, 11am-5pm

You can also get support online via twitter or Facebook, where you can find fellow quitters, share tips and advice and support each other to quit smoking. Follow @KTH_CACT and use the hashtag #QuityourWay to show your support on twitter or join facebook.com/charltonathleticcommunitytrust to join in the conversation on Facebook.

 

So come along and quit your way, today!
