The first No Smoking Day was on Ash Wednesday 1984. No Smoking Day takes place on the second Wednesday of March. In 2024, No Smoking Day is on the 13th of March, it is the annual health awareness day in the UK which is intended to help smokers who want to quit smoking.

It is recognised that smoking contains a wide range of health risks. Smoking causes around seven out of every ten cases of lung cancer. Smoking also causes cancer in many other areas of the body including; bladder, bowel, cervix, kidney, liver, mouth, oesophagus, pancreas, stomach, throat and voice box.

Smoking also damages the body, leading to heart disease and heart attacks, strokes, COPD, bronchitis, pneumonia, reduced fertility and healing from surgery. Those around smokers also are affected by passive smoking. A child who breathes in passive smoke is more likely to get chest infections.

Carers are often physically and emotionally exhausted. They also often struggle financially. Stopping smoking is the single best thing you can do to improve your health. Stopping smoking will also improve finances, which is much needed in the cost-of-living crises.

Hypnotherapy is an effective and safe way to stop smoking. To mark the 40th anniversary of No Smoking Day, I’m offering a half-price stop smoking session for carers (paid or unpaid), who book a session in March. This brings the cost down from £120 to £60. This includes the session, a CD to listen at home and a workbook to take home with. Please note that hypnotherapy is not recommended for people with a history of psychosis or epilepsy.
