STOP SMOKING WISBECH
When you stop smoking, the body begins a process of self repair that will very quickly impact every aspect of your wellbeing. Research has shown that stopping smoking doesn’t only drastically improve physical health, but also mental health, and greatly reduces stress over time, not to mention the money you save!
As part of the Integrated Neighbourhood project, we aim to help anyone who’s struggling with tobacco addiction to stop smoking in order to lead a healthier life.
We collected all the local resources available to the Wisbech population, where 1 in 4 people smokes. Please scroll down to see how we can help on your journey.
Whether you're a smoker looking to quit, or just curious about the benefits of quitting, we hope you'll find the information on our website helpful and informative. If you don't smoke, send this website to someone you know and help them start their health journey!
One of the best things you can do for your health, is to stop smoking.
