Taking action on smoking and health
Sign up for our daily or weekly bulletins.
A two day conference in Edinburgh where health advocates from the UK, Europe and further afield will seek to map out the journey to a society free from the harm caused by tobacco.
18 and 19 June 2015, The John McIntyre Centre, University of Edinburgh, Scotland
This year’s No Smoking Day theme is ‘Proud to be a Quitter'. In life we’re told never to give up, to keep going but when it comes to smoking, being a ‘Quitter’ is a good thing, so this year inspirational stories of ex-smokers are being used to highlight the life-changing benefits of quitting. Smokers in Scotland are being urged to take the first step in giving up cigarettes for good on No Smoking Day which takes place on Wednesday 11 March. We know that two-thirds of smokers want to quit, yet nearly one in five Scots continue to smoke.
