Attention smokers of Hull. If you’ve made it your New Years’ Resolution to give up smoking, make sure the Bluetooth on your mobile phone is switched on. Quit Buddy, a scheme set up by the local NHS Stop Smoking Service, has set up a range of Bluetooth posters around town to help quitters successfully quit.
Anyone passing a poster with their Bluetooth switched on will get an encouraging text message from Quit Buddy, if the recent VAT increase on tobacco isn’t enough to make you consider ditching the tabs.
A lot of quitters may agree that the first month is often the hardest, Hullensians are getting extra help from several Bluetooth posters dotted around town. People that join the scheme will also get daily text messages, with support and information on quitting.
