Smokers Try To Quit On No Smoking Day

Smokers in Birmingham are being encouraged to break the habit on No Smoking Day

On the 30th Anniversary of No Smoking Day, smokers are being encouraged to quit the habit once and for all.

This year smokers are being encouraged to focus on what they could afford if they were to quit for a day (saving £7), a month (£210) and a year (£2555).

Over the next few weeks we're following the progress of a mum of two from Birmingham who has decided to stop smoking once a for all.

Speaking before her doctors appointment Phillippa told us why she's doing this:

"Mainly health, secondly cost and I don't know why I do it. How guilty can you feel when your kids catch you with a cigarette in your mouth so I have got to do it for the kids."
