Join Gary Cooke on his journey to quit smoking for good

Actor Gary Cooke is giving up the smokes with the help of Quit and you can follow his journey here.

The funnyman, best known for his impressions of sports commentator Eamon Dunphy, will be posting his journey without cigarettes on the website so that fellow quitters can follow it.

Gary will be using the QUIT services to help him give up smoking. He's also put a shout-out to any smokers who want to join him and QUIT too. The QUIT service is available free of charge to anyone who needs it.

The Dubliner says his main reason for cutting out cigarettes is for his health.

He said in the clip: "I used to be a box-to-box midfielder and now I'm simply a box-to-box cigarette smoker."

Like many smokers, Gary has tried quitting before for six or nine months in the year but always went back to them.

He's determined he'll be rid of the smokes this time around saying: "This time I am going to manage it because I'm going to be supported by the QUIT team at"

The QUIT campaign service has helped thousands of people quit smoking, and there are now more quitters than smokers in Ireland.

The service provides a free, personal support service to help quitters – providing a team of trained advisors, online tools, understanding and support.

The QUIT team can help you over the phone, on Facebook or Twitter, via email or text, or through Live Chat.
