A smoking cessation programme run by Nuneaton-based George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust is going to extend exhaustive help and support to people who want to kick the habit in 2012, reports the Coventry Telegraph.
The service has already had its fair share of success over the past year, helping more than 3,700 nicotine addicts give up smoking, the local tabloid informs, adding that it will recommence this month with a renewed impetus on motivating people to quit smoking and lead a healthy, long life.
Functioning independently of public healthcare facilities countrywide, the George Eliot Hospital Trust has a complete range of stop smoking aids and services designed to meet specific requirements, learns the Coventry Times. Those who have decided to part with their deadly habit in the New Year are most welcome to seek help from the service, proclaims Jane Wright of the George Eliot Hospital Trust, saying that a smoker usually has a fourfold chance of quitting with external help and support, as opposed to quitting alone.
The quit smoking programme has already helped a local taxi driver stop smoking for good, the newspaper notes, saying that 62-year-old Keith Fairburn cut the number of daily puffs from twenty to zero after he was given nicotine patches by NHS Warwickshire.
Mr Fairburn seems to be very happy not just because he has got a new breath of life after quitting, but more so because of the warmth and compassion he received from the nurses working with the NHS, says the Coventry Telegraph.Add Comment
