Taking action on smoking and health
ASH Scotland's theme for this year's No Smoking Day campaign is 'Quit and Win' and through our media, social media, parliamentary and community engagement work, we are encouraging people throughout Scotland to make attempts to quit smoking to benefit their health, wellbeing and personal finances.
We are highlighting a wide range of just some of the benefits which people who smoke could win if they give up smoking. Read about them In our 'Quit and see what you could Win' briefing.
To mark No Smoking Day, we are publicising our new research analysis estimating the financial impacts throughout the 2023 cost of living crisis that addictive cigarettes are having on the lowest income Scottish households containing people who smoke. Read our story here.
We are delighted to share the stories of three people from across Scotland who have successfully quit smoking and are backing our 'Quit and Win' campaign. Read the inspirational stories of Karen, Alastair and Wilson.We'd love more people who have given up tobacco to get in touch and tell us about motivations and types of support that were most useful. Please share your story - up to a maximum of 200 words - by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org. For details about the potential ways your story could be used (only with your permission) to inspire other people to make a quit smoking attempt, visit our Share your story page.
