After numerous unsuccessful attempts, his life was changed when he was introduced to Ida, the Spurs Nurse, who delivers pop-up health checks throughout the community, including a stop smoking clinic at the Day Mer Centre in Tottenham.
During a 12-week course with Ida, Pete quit smoking and has since seen a dramatic improvement in his health and quality of life.
He said: “I tried to quit so many times before but nothing had worked, so what Ida has done for me is amazing. I can smell again, taste again and breathe properly. It’s like being given a second chance at life and I can’t tell you how grateful I am.”
