Tobacco control is everybody’s business, so what can you do?
- Create smokefree environments for your family and friends!
- Be aware of the law regarding illicit sales (marketplaces, mobile units, street traders) and under-age sales and, if you suspect an outlet of making an illicit or under-age sale, please report it to you local Trading Standards office, who will investigate it.
- If you or someone you know wants to quit smoking, contact CAMQUIT on 0800 018 4304 for support and advice. Support World No Smoking Day on March 14th and World No Tobacco Day in May – keep an eye out for local initiatives around the day, and see what you can do in your community and workplace to make something more of it!
