Greystones Cancer Support considers cancer prevention as part of its remit. The group recognises that tobacco is the leading cause of preventable deaths. Stop Smoking Courses are held by GCS on a regular basis.

A new course is starting Monday,  19 September, 2016 at 7:30 pm.

The course will run for six Mondays at Greystones Cancer Support,  La Touche Place,  Greystones. It will be facilitated,  as usual,  by the Jacinta Barnewell,  a well known health professional in the field.

Did you know that one in every two smokers will die from a smoking related death ?? 80% of smokers want to quit. 40% of smokers try to quit each year.

Sometimes,  it takes several attempts to stop smoking. If you have tried before,  why not try again ?? If you go to a Stop Smoking Group,  you are twice as likely to succeed.

Please spread the word to family and friends that this course is starting. All are welcome to come along. The course is offered free of charge.

Sonia Walsh, Chairman of Greystones Cancer Support says:

Each of us should be taking responsibility for staying as healthy as we possibly can.  We owe it,  not only to ourselves,  but to those who love and care for us.  We extend a warm welcome to those who would like to come to our course in September.
