"Be there tomorrow"


website banner

A candid and heart wrenching new advert about how smoking causes early death has been broadcast to South West homes. We all know smoking kills but somehow we think it will kill ‘other people’, not us. The stark truth is that smoking will kill one in two smokers, often after years of disability and much earlier than expected.

The campaign developed by Smokefree South West aims to bring home why it’s worth taking that vital step to quit now, and urges smokers to be there tomorrow for their family and loved ones.

Smoking still remains the biggest cause of premature death in England, accounting for 80,000 deaths a year with half of all long-term smokers dying early from a smoking related disease.

The local Cornwall NHS Stop Smoking Service helps many people to quit every year. If you are looking to make a fresh start this New Year, please call 01209 313419 for a range of free support and resources to help you quit successfully.
