James’s Story

James Corbett, a staff member at Moyard House, knows just how effective our Well Talks can be in encouraging people to make healthy lifestyle changes. James, a long time smoker, participated in a number of talks and events around No Smoking Day 2017. He has now quit smoking.

He said: “I always knew that smoking wasn’t good for my health but I didn’t think I could stop until I got involved in the NICHS stop smoking sessions. The information and support given to me was brilliant. I learned loads of things, got tips for stopping and heard about other support from places like my pharmacist. My confidence just grew and I know what I’ve done has made family, friends and people at the hostel realise they can do it too.”
