I thought it was "International Women's Day" today?  ??? I hadn't heard it was No Smoking Day.

 :o I've been in a hospital all day that has nothing up for no smoking day but did for international women's day......this was genuinely the first I'd heard of it. That's worrying....

It's very worring tea!  I only found out from another forum. International women's day has been well documented,  but no smoking day hasn't been spoken about at all.

I remember the tv adverts that make me cringe.  I would go for a fag rather than sit and watch them.  The budget has obviously been cut.  Shocking really  009

......but they're currently paying for TV adverts and social media is free! When I just googled our site came up 3rd on the list, probably purely on the basis of this thread!! Given that the price of cigarettes went up today as well they could've tagged it as a link, surely anything would've been better than nothing.

You have a point tea.  It doesn't cost much,  if anything to advertise in this day an age. I have just had a look in our doctor surgery in work,  and they have last years leaflets but nothing for this year?  I wonder if this will die out and stoptober will be the one that they focus on.

Surely as many as they can is better  002 002

The local NHS smoking cessation service had a bit of an event in local high street yesterday so at least it wasn't completely forgotten.

Finally saw sense on 8/12/13
