Smokers to be supported in Stoptober

A BOGNOR Regis woman is encouraging smokers to quit as part of a government initiative.

Heather Gale, a smoking cessation expert, has welcomed the Government’s Stoptober initiative to encourage people to stop smoking for the month of October.

She said: “Any initiative which helps people to consider stopping smoking is to be applauded.

“However, it is very difficult to give up without the right support and tools.

“For this reason, we are offering the first two sessions of our programme free to let people try a different method of quitting. Normally, only the first session is free but during October anyone signing up to the programme can take advantage of this special offer.”

Heather, who is a Quit Smoking Pal Consultant, runs a unique six-week smoking cessation programme which combines a patented nicotine-blocking technology with personal coaching to help people stop smoking.

“Our programme is unique and has a proven track record of success as it focuses on nicotine reduction and support from a personal coach,” she added.
