Smoking

Please note that in Scotland It is illegal to smoke in most indoor places other than private homes. This includes restaurants, bars, cafes, hotels, theatres, bingo halls, church halls, sports centres, shopping centres, public transport, schools, hospitals and all clubs.

Smoking is an old fashioned habit and is in the process of becoming taboo in Scotland with the introduction of the public ban of smoking. All University premises including halls of residences are no smoking areas, as well as all pubs and clubs within the city. Smoking is not good for you – it causes a whole host of health problems, costs a fortune, is addictive and smells.

Pack a day smokers can spend over £2500 a year, but stopping doesn't have to cost you anything!  If you would like help and support to stop smoking then visit your local pharmacy where you can get advice and access to Nicotine Replacement Therapy all for FREE! or contact the Smoking Advice Service on freephone 0500 600 332 and you can attend one of the dozens of stop smoking groups running across the City
