Smokers are being encouraged to stub out their cigarettes and make 2024 the year they go smokefree.

Every year millions of people across England make a quit attempt, with research showing that people who can stop smoking for four weeks are five times more likely to stay smoke free for good.

Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Adults and Wellbeing, said: “Stopping smoking is the best thing you can do for your health and the health of those around you, on both a short-term and long-term basis.

“When you stop smoking, good things happen – and you can begin to see almost immediate improvements to your health.

"You'll feel better and have more energy to keep up with the kids, your home and clothes will smell fresher, you'll have more money for other things.

“So why not make 2024 the year you go smokefree? It's much easier to stop smoking when you get the right support. and there are lots of options to choose from.”
