Smoking is a serious risk to health – 17% of the Northern Ireland population smoke.
It is the greatest single cause of preventable illness and premature death, killing approximately 2400 people every year in Northern Ireland.
Smoking is not just a habit, it is an addiction. Many smokers want to quit but equally need the right circumstances for their attempts to be sustained. Specialist Stop Smoking Support is available to any service user or staff member interested in quitting smoking.
