Thousands of smokers stub out the habit

SMOKERS in Hucknall and the rest of Nottinghamshire are stubbing out the bad habit in their thousands, health bosses have revealed.

NHS Nottinghamshire County says that more than 6,000 people from Nottinghamshire managed to beat the habit last year.

The health body has exceeded its stop-smoking target for 2010 to 2011 with the figure already hitting 6,080, which translates to 16 people a day packing in cigarettes.
