No Smoking Day (10 March) is encouraging smokers in Truro and Falmouth to break free and kick the habit. In its 27th year, No Smoking Day is encouraging smokers to quit smoking, save thousands of pounds and take the opportunity to find out about help and support available.

Terrye Teverson, Liberal Democrat PPC for Truro and Falmouth is supporting this year's No Smoking Day campaign. Thousands of No Smoking Day events are taking place all over the UK. There will be customised Double-Decker Buses, ashtray amnesties, interactive stalls, dance displays and world record attempts. And many sports activities including local football clubs are getting involved. Stop smoking services, fire and rescue services, local councils, supermarkets, and many more are out and about to help and support smokers who are ready to break free!

"No Smoking Day is a fantastic campaign to help and support smokers who want to stop smoking." Mrs Teverson said.

"I'm encouraging smokers to break free on No Smoking Day and give up cigarettes for good! In this current economic climate, hardworking families are finding it particularly difficult. If you stop smoking today, within a month you are £180 better off."

Duncan Bannatyne, No Smoking Day President, entrepreneur and Dragons' Den star said:

"Quitting smoking isn't always easy. Most of the nine million UK smokers say they'd like to quit, and many have tried to stop several times over the last year.

"If you've tried and failed a few times, it's easy to give up hope. But you'll find few ex-smokers that quit the habit on their first attempt. So pick yourself up, dust yourself down and believe that this time you really can do it!"
