NHS Bedfordshire is encouraging smokers to make 2012 the year they quit tobacco.

Muriel Scott, director of public health, said: “The benefits of not smoking begin within hours and boost not just your health but your wallet too, as a 20-a-day smoker will spend more than £2,000 a year on cigarettes or tobacco.

“Last year we supported more than 4,400 people in Bedfordshire and Luton to stop smoking and our aim is to help even more during 2012.”
