Recession leads 1 in 3 Smokers to cut Down or Quit
Date:3/10/2009

Bissix, ex-Eastenders star and Dancing on Ice celebrity, who recently stopped smoking with the help of her local NHS Stop Smoking Service and supports No Smoking Day said: "There's only one piece of advice that I'd give to someone who wants to get fit for summer - quit smoking! So why not use No Smoking Day on 11 March to kick start you new healthy living? I stopped smoking with the support of my local NHS Stop Smoking Service."

There are a number of events taking place across the UK to mark No Smoking Day including the "switch ash for cash" schools challenge set by Duncan Bannatyne.

The Dragons' Den star has been inundated with ideas from school children to help parents give up smoking, and three finalists will be presenting their ideas to him this afternoon in central London.

The winner will receive GBP2000 for their school and a GBP250 gift token for their family.
