Queen's Marks No Smoking Day
Aimed to promote a healthier lifestyle, the health profiles will test individual's carbon monoxide readings. The assessors will then explain how much benefit could be derived from giving up smoking. A follow-up test is also on offered to show how much the carbon monoxide reading changes after giving up.
The University has marked No Smoking Day for the last 6 years and has a No Smoking policy in all University buildings.
A charity, oddly enough called No Smoking Day (NSD), organises the national campaign every year. The charity is based in London and is run by 3 full time staff. NSD aims to help people who want to stop smoking by creating a supportive environment for them, and by highlighting the many sources of help available to people who want to quit.
The campaign has been running for 23 years and claims to have helped 1.4 million smokers stop for good.
