Matlock family of five kick their habit

A FAMILY in Matlock is leading the way in the campaign to stub out smoking after three generations successfully kicked their habit.

Five members of the same family have managed to kick the habit by staying nicotine-free since for months.

Julie (43) and Robert Webster (50), of Hirst Rise, and their 19-year-old daughter Paige, took the bold step after the teenager fell pregnant.

Their decision came after Julie’s parents, Sandra (64) and Darrell Viner (67) had ditched the costly addiction just after Christmas.
