An amazing group of women from Tallaght are celebrating after completing a programme to quit smoking.
The course from the Irish Cancer Society called “We Can Quit” was completed by 12 women in the Fettercairn Community Centre, with 10 of them managing to quit smoking completely.
It was in partnership with the HSE, Fettercairn Community Health Project, South Dublin County Partnership, South Dublin County Council and Rossfield Pharmacy and the 12-week programme began in February.
Rachel Burke, Community Cancer Prevention Officer at the Irish Cancer Society said: “We would like to congratulate all of the local women who have completed We Can Quit – it is a fantastic achievement which will have a positive impact on their lives, and those of their families.
“We Can Quit offers women support to take on and succeed on their quitting journey. Through the programme, women can access a friendly and supportive network of like-minded women who really understand what they are going through.
“Together, the women in We Can Quit help each other to quit smoking for good.”
