Free Stop Smoking Course

Quitting smoking is the best thing you can do for your health.  Have you tried quitting as part of a group?

As part of the Healthy Trinity initiative, the Health and Sports Centres are running a FREE stop smoking course for students and staff.  Going through the highs and lows of quitting with others might be just what you need. 

You’re welcome on the course whether you want to exercise or not but exercising when you quit increases your chance of success.  The Sports Centre is offering reduced prices on certain classes to staff and students, member and non-members who attend the course.  Why not try exercise to help you quit?

Course starting: 3rd October 2018
Time: 1.05-1.50 for 4-6 weeks
Location: The Health Centre

The course will cover topics like readiness to stop, dealing with cravings, the pros and cons of stopping and using patches or nicotine replacement therapies. The sports centre is giving discounts on certain classes and the new timetable includes lots of new options.  Discounts are applied weekly and subject to attendance at the course.
