On 05/31/2024, employees of the Department of prevention and socio-psychological assistance of the KGP “Polyclinic No. 2 of Kostanay” held an action: “We change cigarettes for sweets”, dedicated to the World Anti-Smoking Day. Traditionally, the campaign was held under the motto “Better sweet candy than cigarette smoke!”.

       The purpose of this campaign is to raise public awareness of the devastating effects of tobacco smoking on human health, to engage in the fight against smoking, and to introduce a healthy lifestyle.

        During the campaign, the population was consulted on the prevention of tobacco smoking.   The patients of the polyclinic were provided with a lot of useful and visual information about the dangers of smoking and leading a healthy lifestyle. People who wish to quit smoking were also invited to the Anti-smoking Room.

          The nurses of the screening room of the Department of prevention and socio-psychological care also held talks about the importance of timely screening, thanks to which you can find out your blood sugar and cholesterol levels, body mass index and get recommendations on behavioral risk factors (smoking, alcoholism).

       And patients who smoke were offered, at least for this day, to give up the bad habit and replace their cigarettes with sweets.  In addition, they were given booklets with recommendations on giving up this very harmful and dangerous habit – smoking!!!

We urge everyone to quit smoking, help their relatives, friends, acquaintances do it and promote a healthy lifestyle!
