Today is the day to stop smoking

15 July 2020

We’re supporting a new campaign called ‘Today is the Day’, which encourages smokers to stop smoking for good.


The new campaign, led by Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) calls for smokers to quit today to protect themselves from smoking related diseases and increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19. Smoking is the largest cause of preventable death in Derbyshire responsible for over 1,266 deaths a year.

Smokers are four times more likely to stop with help from their local stop smoking services and benefits to health can appear straight away.
