Workers kick the habit in the office

Have your say

Workers at Swinton in Halifax kicked the habit as part of an eight-week Stop Smoking In The Workplace exercise.

The specialist service, provided by the South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, helped 11 out of the 16 workers who took part to quit.

For each person who successfully quits the company will donate £20 to the British Heart Foundation.

Quitter Simon Notton, who smoked for 18 years, said, “I am no longer someone who’s quitting smoking but am a non-smoker. I feel great and the domino effect is already taking hold. My partner is looking to stop smoking and hopefully her workplace will invite the stop-smoking team along to help.” If you are an employer in Calderdale, and would like to know more about this free service, contact the specialist stop smoking service on 01422 281505.
