Help for women smokers to quit – and it’s free!

WOMEN smokers from Tallaght and Clondalkin are invited to attend free one-to-one support sessions courtesy of the Irish Cancer Society’s We Can Quit programme.

The free smoking cessation programme will commence on September 17 in Rowlagh Community Centre and on September 18 in Killinarden Community Centre

smoking quitParticipants are invited to attend weekly group sessions and receive one-to-one support during the 12-week programme.

They will also be offered free Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT).

Research has shown that smokers who use a combination of group support and two NRT products for a 12-week period are four times more likely to quit and stay smoke-free for good.

Recent analysis shows that over half of all the We Can Quit participants had quit smoking at the end of the course.

Joanne Vance, Community Programmes Manager at the Irish Cancer Society said, “We Can Quit has gone from strength to strength since it began in 2013. Over the last six years, 300 women from Dublin have completed the 12-week course.

"More importantly, many of them have managed to successfully quit smoking for good as a result of the initiative so we know that the programme works."

We Can Quit is run in partnership with the HSE, Rossfield Pharmacy, local community partners and in partnership with the, SDCP Clondalkin Health House and Lloyds Pharmacy.

The programme is open to female smokers living in Tallaght and Clondalkin over the age of 18.
