Not smoking around children is the best way to encourage them to grow up not to smoke.
NHS Lanarkshire’s Positive Smoke-Free Role Models project has a particular focus on children, and works towards:
- Preventing children and young people becoming the next generation of people who smoke
- Protecting children, adults, and pets from the harmful effects of second-hand smoke
To support and promote these goals throughout Lanarkshire, we’re asking you to take the pledge to become a positive smoke-free role model for children and young people.
Whether it’s not smoking around children, making your home and car smoke-free, or positively influencing others to get involved and take the pledge, you can be a positive smoke-free role model for children and young people.
You don’t have to smoke to take the pledge, everyone can get involved!
Take a few minutes out of your day and take the pledge here.
