Share Your Smokefree Story

posted on

Are you an ex-smoker? Your smokefree story could inspire others to quit, just like you did.

“If my story encourages just one person to pick up the phone and get support to quit, then it’s worth it. The support I received from Yorkshire Smokefree changed my life.”
– Muhammad, Ex-smoker Sheffield

We want to know what inspired you to quit smoking, what support you had along the way and how it made a difference to your life. Stories like yours can help to empower people in so many ways.

So, are you ready to tell your story?

Here’s how we can bring your story to life.

We might share your story in many ways:

  • Our website: Reach those who are searching for advice and inspiration online.
  • Our social media channels: Engage members of the Smokefree Sheffield community on Facebook and Twitter.
  • Printed promotional materials: From small scale posters and flyers to larger billboards.
  • Video stories: We often produce video and audio content based on real life stories. You can feature yourself if you’d like to.

Your story, your choice.

Although we’d prefer it if you were happy for us to capture you in person, we understand you might not want your story to be used in certain places:

  • You can choose to remain anonymous if you don’t want to identify yourself.
  • You can choose the channels we use to share your story (web/social media/print/TV/radio etc).
  • We won’t do anything without your permission.

If you share your story with us and it’s chosen to feature on our channels, you’ll get a £20 shopping voucher. *
