Help to stop smoking
Our local NHS stop smoking service is Quit4Life, providing friendly, effective help for anyone who would like to kick the habit. No matter how long you have been smoking or how many times you have tried before you will benefit from giving up - and Quit4Life makes it a lot easier!
Even if you are not sure whether you are ready to make a quit attempt we would urge you to contact them to find out what they offer. Their friendly advisers can guide you through the whole process, talking through any concerns along the way - getting ready to quit, discussing medication options, arranging the supply of your chosen stop smoking products and providing regular support and encouragement until you are confident about remaining smoke free. Feedback from regular monitoring of your carbon monoxide levels will also help demonstrate how quickly your body starts to benefit from stopping completely.
They offer both one-to-one appointments and drop-in clinics at venues all over the locality. If you are unable to attend regular sessions you can enrol for telephone support, with your adviser ringing you at agreed times.
