Free patches for a smoke-free New Year

Chris Holmes, a hypnotherapist and campaigner against NHS expenditure on nicotine replacement therapies urges us to join the campaign to consign these ineffective treatments to history. He starts with a government plan to provide one week's supply of nicotine patches free of charge to assist people with their new year's resolutions.

Read what he has to say, share the story with your friends, and then write to your MP, MSP, assembly member, local and national press, health board, or if you have any further ideas let us know. We picketed the 2010 UK National Smoking Cessation Conference in Glasgow last June, which was all about pushing medication.

Drug companies benefit far more from smoking bans than tobacco companies suffer from them.
