No Smoking Day is an annual health awareness day in the United Kingdom which is intended to help smokers who want to quit smoking.

No Smoking Day, which takes place on the second Wednesday of March each year, is a great opportunity for partners across the country to unite in encouraging and supporting the nation’s 5.3 million smokers to make a quit attempt. Established in 1984, this year marks the 40th anniversary of No Smoking Day. Since this time smoking prevalence has reduced by two thirds, but there is still some way to go to achieve our ambition of becoming a smoke-free nation by 2030.

  • Quitting smoking is the best thing you can do for your health.
  • It’s never too late to quit smoking. When you stop smoking, there are almost immediate improvements to your health.
  • It’s much easier to stop smoking when you get the right support and there are lots of options to choose from.
  • Getting expert support from your local stop smoking services means you’re three times as likely to quit for good.
  • Better Health offers a range of free quitting support, including the NHS Quit Smoking app, local stop smoking service look-up tool, as well as advice on stop smoking aids including information on how vaping can help you quit smoking.
  • Nicotine vapes are one of the most effective stop smoking aids. Almost two-thirds of people who use a vape along with support from their local Stop Smoking Service successfully quit smoking.
  • On average smokers spend £38.59 a week on tobacco. That means they could have around £2,000 more to spend a year by quitting.
