Don’t try and give up all three in one go, set yourself a realistic goal that’s achievable.
Try to be positive when promoting healthy new year messages – i.e the smallest change can make us feel healthier and happier. NOT doom and gloom of having to give something up.
DON’T promote the use of e-cigarettes, suggest that if they contact the local stop smoking providers they can get FREE help and support to quit instead and they will be more likely to stay quit.
Again mentioning the positives of quitting - When you quit, you will see the benefits almost immediately; food will taste better, your circulation will improve and your risk of getting illnesses like cancer or heart disease will be reduced.
Please promote our local quit smoking number 0800 085 0928 Text: stokequit to 60777 for those who live in SoT and want Free help and support to quit.
You're four times more likely to quit by getting free support from our local stop smoking clinics.
Alcohol can sneak up on us – the odd glass in the evening can quickly become two or three regular glasses, most
evenings. Try having two consecutive alcohol free days a week if you don’t want to go give up for the whole month.
If you have over indulged over Christmas - why not have a new year detox and try to have a Dry January?
Positive messages - alcohol also contains calories, so by giving this up in January it will help your waistline too!
If anyone is concerned about their alcohol use, they can call the Community Alcohol Service on 01782 283113
