A healthier, happier future at KC North Hub

Blenheim, supported by Kick It, will be providing our service user’s in the Tri-Borough with six, free, weekly sessions of help and support to get through the hardest part of giving up smoking.

The clinics will start at the KC North Hub  on the 13th April 2015 from 10am to 12 noon.

Service users can expect top quality advice on medications that can help (available on prescription) along with support on the really difficult bit – changing behaviours and habits helping people be smoke free, for good! With regular Carbon Monoxide tests participants will be able to see their health improving in front of their eyes.

Appointments will be available 1 to 1 with an advisor or for those with a busy schedule we can also offer telephone support a text messaging service.

A healthier, happier future…

You may well be fed up of being told about all of the dangers of smoking and for that reason we’re not going to use this page to nag you. Instead we want to tell you about some of the benefits associated with stopping smoking.

The minute you stop smoking your health starts improving…

20 MINUTES

Your blood pressure and pulse return to normal. Circulation improves – especially in your hands and feet.

8 HOURS

Your blood oxygen levels return to normal and your chance of having a heart attack falls.

24 HOURS

Carbon Monoxide leaves your body. Your lungs start to clear out mucus and debris.

48 HOURS

Congratulations. Your body is now nicotine free. And have you noticed how your sense of taste and smell have improved?

72 HOURS

Your breathing is easier. You have more energy.

2-12 WEEKS

Circulation is now improved throughout your body. It’s easier for you to walk and exercise now.

3-9 MONTHS

Your lung efficiency is up by 5-10 per cent. Breathing problems are fading away. Say goodbye to coughing, shortness of breath and wheezing.

5 YEARS

You now have only half the chance of getting a heart attack compared to a smoker.

10 YEARS

The chance of you getting lung cancer is now half that of a smoker. Your chances of having a heart attack are now the same as someone who’s never
smoked.

So, do you want to stop smoking?
