MIKE HEDGES AM JOINS HEALTH PROFFESIONALS IN SUPPORTING NATIONAL NO SMOKING DAY.
March 14th 2019 is National No Smoking day
Mike Hedges AM said… with around 34% of people in Swansea East smoking, it is good to remember what a smoker could buy with their money if they gave up their 10 cigarette a day habit. Of course, the main benefit to giving up smoking is Health related but there is also a financial benefit too. I hope that Swansea can maintain its progress to being a Healthy City with a smoking population of less than 25%. National No Smoking day is a day to focus on giving up for health and financial reasons. There are many places you can get support to give up smoking – you can start by chatting to your GP or Pharmacist.
If a smoker gave up their 10-a-day cigarette habit* they would save:
• £3.48 a day
• £24.32 a week
• £105.70 a month
• £1268.38 a year
