Kick it is committed to reducing the prevalence of shisha usage, a way of smoking tobacco through a water pipe; a past time particularly popular amongst some ethnic groups. Kick It attempts to increase awareness around the risks associated with shisha use and shed lights on common shisha myths. A variety of shisha related resources are available through Kick It, as well as shisha friendly clinics where users can receive specialist support on stopping.
A quitter testimonial is available in both English and Arabic below:
In this modern day and age, with the use of smart phones so prevalent amongst Londoners, Kick It also recommends the use of the free Cigbreak app to support a quit attempt. The Cigbreak app is multi-faceted featuring a quit tracker, distraction games for those long tube journeys and helpful tips and advice for those times when the cravings hit. Android phone users can download the app here:
At Kick-It we also recognise the importance of smoking prevention and to support this arm of work we have a specialist youth project called Ctrl-Z. To find out more about Ctrl-Z visit the Youth Smoking Prevention page.
