88% of pregnant women who tried to quit smoking started again within 4 weeks

ALMOST 90% of pregnant women referred to Glasgow's smoking cessation services went on to light up again within four weeks. Figures show the message is still not getting through to women about the dangers of prenatal smoking. A total of 1270 women were referred to NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde's Smokefree Pregnancy Service from April 1 to September 30 this year. Of that number only 380 set a quit date with 154 still off cigarettes at four weeks - just 12% of the total referred.

  • Too many folk just don't listen Robert. I stopped smoking a dozen times, but fortunately stopped for good and two years later, was diagnosed. Smokers need to stop NOW - and they have a much better chance of survival if they DO get cancer.

    Hope you're doing well Robert. Merry Christmas.
