Northumberland smokers are being encouraged to quit this New Year to improve life in 2023 with better health, more money and less stress.

That’s the message from Fresh, the regional programme for tobacco control.

Ailsa Rutter, director of Fresh, said the organisation recommends that people use a quit aid and get free local support to stop – making the process less stressful and more successful.
