Have your say

SMOKERS are being urged to get kissable this Valentine’s Day by kicking the habit.

PompeyQuit will be out and about in the city on Monday reminding those who smoke that one of the best ways to show your love is by quitting.

Sian Howells, PompeyQuit manager, said: ‘Nothing beats a fresh breath kiss.

‘With love in the air, we thought it would be helpful getting to meet smokers in Portsmouth and advising them about the benefits of stopping smoking.

‘Apart from the obvious difference it would make to romantic life, quitting is one of the best ways of improving health and finances.’

PompeyQuit advisors will be talking to smokers about the problems their habit can cause – including the impact it can have on fertility and sexual performance. Research shows that men in their 30s and 40s who smoke increase their risk of impotence by about 50 per cent.

Female smokers are more than three times more likely than non-smokers to take longer than the average to conceive.

To find out where PompeyQuit advisors will be on Valentine’s Day, or to use the stop smoking service, call (023) 9236 9234 or text Kissable to 88020.
