Smokers can still to be spotted at this time of year shivering in doorways or draughty shelters while their family, friends or workmates enjoy the warmth, light and festive fun inside pubs, clubs or restaurants.

This year, 900 people in North Lincolnshire have already quit with the help of specialist stop smoking services.

The army of non-smokers and ex-smokers is growing all the time in North Lincolnshire and there is lots of help for people who want to join them.
