"It was important to me that my partner quit"

Victoria quit smoking when she found out she was pregnant. The hardest thing for her was staying stopped after she had given birth, and that's when Victoria decided to get in touch with her local stop smoking service.

Victoria was also keen for her partner Mark to stop smoking. Mark was quite a heavy smoker, and it was something that had been worrying Victoria after the birth of their son: "It was important to me that he quit as well - just to give me that extra bit of encouragement."

Mark says: "To start with I found it really tricky. There were loads of people smoking at work and they didn’t really seem to care. But I just persevered with it and carried on. In the end I just got there ... I'm so glad I did".
