STOP SMOKING WISBECH
Stopping smoking can have a positive impact on your overall wellbeing. Research has shown that it can improve not only your physical health, but also your mental health, reduce stress, and save you money.
One of the best things you can do for your health, is to stop smoking.
As part of the Integrated Neighbourhood project, we want to help anyone who is struggling with tobacco addiction to stop smoking and live a healthier life. We have gathered all the local resources available in Wisbech, where 1 in 4 people smoke, to help you on your journey.
If you are a smoker who wants to quit, or if you are interested in the benefits of quitting, our website has information that can be helpful and informative. If you do not smoke, please share this website with someone you know who may benefit from it.
