Top comedians encourage Warrington smokers to quit

During October smokers in Warrington are being encouraged to join up and quit together for Stoptober 2014 – the National 28-day stop smoking challenge from Public Health England – using a range of free resources, advice and an element of Great British humour.

Smokers will get a range of free tools including a new stop smoking pack, a 28-day mobile phone app, text support with daily updates, quitting advice and tips for coping, as well as the encouragement and support from thousands of people quitting together through social media channels.

Alongside support, top British comedians including the North West’s Paddy McGuinness will bring a touch of the British sense of humour to help quitters through this challenge.

Dianne Clarke, LiveWire’s Area Neighbourhood Wellbeing Manager and Strategic Lead for Healthy Lifestyles said:

“Stoptober is a great opportunity for the smokers across Warrington to quit together alongside friends, family and thousands of other people in our area."
“Quitting is the single best thing you can do for your health and with the help of LiveWire’s stop smoking service, the campaigns support, advice and humour I’m sure this year will be very successful.”

You can access local free support with LiveWire’s stop smoking service, which has free drop-in sessions throughout Warrington. Research shows smokers are four times more likely to quit with the help of a trained advisor.
