Have your say

THE next group sessions to quit smoking with Pompey legend Alan Knight are due to begin on Tuesday.

The eight-week Kick the Habit course runs at the Pompey Study Centre in Anson Road, Milton.

Those who want to quit smoking are offered moral support through the informal group by talking.

Health trainer Paul Allen said: ‘The group that ran before Christmas said they found it much easier to stop smoking with help.

‘They also say their health has improved and they are taking part in physical activity more.

‘We welcome people to come to the sessions and see if we can help.’

The group meets each Tuesday from 5pm to 6pm.
