Giving up is likely to be the greatest single step you can take to improve your health and wellbeing.
There are lots of reasons to quit smoking. Many people are motivated to quit for their family and friends, health benefits or to save money. In fact, often the trigger for kicking the habit is something personal and specific. When we make a pledge and tell people about our goals we are more likely to act on them, it is a powerful motivator and we want to hear your pledges.
So, what is your reason for quitting? Join many others across Dorset making a pledge to quit or cut down smoking using the form on this page.
You don’t have to do it alone either. You are four times more likely to succeed with free support from LiveWell Dorset, which is the local stop smoking and healthy lifestyle service. You can call LiveWell Dorset to get support to quit or cut down on 01305 233105.
