National Non Smoking week wrapped up with Cake at the Sam Lindsay Aquatic Centre on Friday, January 21st.
“It’s National Non Smoking week and we’re just finishing up our poster displays from students in the Elementary Schools. Today, they are supposed to come down and collect their posters and grab some cake to celebrate their hard work for National Non Smoking week,” said Trina Johnson.
While some students took their posters home, others decided to leave it on display until the 28th of January.
Johnson encouraged people who were interested in quitting smoking to contact their health unit to find out more about their quit/cessation program.
“They can meet with a trained councillor and find out more about quit smoking strategies and, if need be, they can have access to free patches, gum, inhalers,” said Johnson.
