Stars get together for anti-smoking drive

THE LATEST phase of a successful public health campaign to encourage smokers in Liverpool to quit is being launched.

In January, Public Health Liverpool persuaded at least 400 people to make a serious attempt to give up – and now the campaign is being relaunched.

Men are being targeted through the ‘Kick the Ciggies’ campaign focused around football, which features Liverpool FC legend Jamie Carragher.

Women are urged to ‘Chuck the Ciggies’ by local actress and presenter Gemma Brodrick and a series of films with local women Danielle, Amy, Ginny and Hilary, who all quit smoking, sharing their tips.

Both campaigns direct people to Smokefree Liverpool, a free service which offers one-to-one support and access to medicines that help fight cravings.
