National No smoking day

TOMORROW, (SATURDAY) is national no-smoking day.

Universities and health centres across Portugal will be giving out free information to help smokers kick the habit.

Statistics about the cost and health hazards of smoking have been released by the health authority including the fact that 44 per cent of heart problems below the age of 65 are smoking related. As an incentive, the health centres have a positive 12 step plan to help stop smoking.

For more information and support on how to quit smoking, visit your local health centre.
