The ‘Not Around Us’ Campaign is about promoting an environment where it is easier for those who use tobacco to quit and stay quit while helping to de-normalise smoking tobacco for the next generation.

The purpose of ‘Not Around Us’ is to:
• Help protect children and young people from second-hand smoke exposure
• Contribute to the denormalisation of smoking/vaping for children and young people
• Reduce environmental nuisance, cost of cleaning and damage that discarded tobacco
products create
• Signpost the HSE Quit services.

If you are interested in quitting smoking please contact Sarah on 086049246, Dawn on 0863404321 and Cara on 0871444489 or visit www.quit.ie .

When you quit for 28 days you are 5 times more likely to quit for good and you have a greater chance of quitting when you get support from specialist staff and use stop smoking medications.
