National No Smoking Day – 8th March 2023

Posted on February 27th, 2023




Smoking increases the chance of getting dementia, as well as lung and heart diseases. Ahead of No Smoking Day on 8 March 2023, Riverside surgery is encouraging smokers to pledge to quit and take back your health.

If you’re a smoker, now is the perfect time to give quitting a go and feel the benefits – from better lung, heart, and brain health, to saving money. Around 5.4 million adults in England still smoke, and it remains the leading preventable cause of premature death.

There are so many reasons to quit – even if you’ve smoked for many years. Not everybody manages to quit first time, but each time you try is a stepping stone to success.  It’s never too late to quit.
