"Ex-smokers are Unstoppable” campaign poster exhibition

On the first floor of the passenger terminal at Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport travellers can stop for a few minutes to discover a poster exhibition of the European Commission's "Ex-smokers are Unstoppable” campaign, which is supported also by Aerodrom Ljubljana.

The posters exhibited inform passengers about the positive effects that quitting smoking brings to the life of smokers. Ex-smokers are healthier, less nervous, smell nicer and have more money. Smoking cessation also results in better sleep, more confidence, an improved appearance, and ultimately more freedom.

This exhibition is only one of the series of activities resulting from the partnership between the “Ex-Smokers are Unstoppable” and Aerodrom Ljubljana. In late May, for World No Tobacco Day, they launched the campaign’s in-flight smoking cessation card to its passengers together with Adria Airways. The card is available at the airport and on Adria flights providing valuable health information to help passengers overcome the desire to smoke at the airport and in-flight, and encourage them to continue a smoke-free life after their travels.

The pan-European "Ex-smokers are Unstoppable" campaign offers inspiration, motivation and practical help to smokers who are trying to quit. It highlights the benefits brought about by smoking cessation, such as better health and  social interaction, more money and, of course, a higher quality of life. The campaign is based upon the  digital medical platform iCoach (http://www.exsmokers.eu/sl-sl/index), which is already helping  more than 390,000 people across Europe in their efforts to give up smoking for good.
"The positive, motivational approach of the campaign was also what convinced me to enroll in the campaign’s online program iCoach. Even today, more than a year since I quit smoking, I can still make use of motivational tips that were offered to me by iCoach on days when I was struggling," said Rahela Rozman, the ambassador of the "Ex-smokers are Unstoppable" campaign in Slovenia.
