People in Clacks who have successfully quit smoking in the last few years are being encouraged to share their experiences.

ASH Scotland is currently preparing for No Smoking Day and is urging Wee County residents to share their journeys to living a tobacco-free life. It wants to highlight the factors which prompted people to stop smoking and what kind of support they found most helpful.

Sheila Duffy, chief executive of ASH Scotland, said: “Ahead of No Smoking Day on 13 March, we would love to hear from people in Clackmannanshire about their successful experiences in the last couple of years or so of giving up smoking for good.

“We look forward to discovering everyone’s inspirational stories, which could encourage others to quit smoking for the first time or try again to live a life free from tobacco and enjoy a healthier future with opportunities to spend their money in other ways.” 

The charity is asking people to share stories up to a maximum of 200 words by emailing: or via
