Stop Smoking

 

We are here to help make it as easy as possible to stop smoking. You may be feeling nervous about the challenge ahead, and we can't promise it will be easy, but with our help and support you stand every chance of quitting for good. And it will be worth it.

Managing Cravings

As you probably know it's the nicotine in tobacco which makes it so addictive.  When your body doesn't get the levels of nicotine it is used to then you may experience some withdrawal symptoms, which differ from person to person.  These can be difficult to deal with, and may tempt you to reach for a cigarette and start smoking again.

Medication can help you through this, and statistics show that you are far more likely to succeed in giving up smoking with the right medication and support. As a service we offer two different ways to help with your cravings, these are either prescribed medication from your GP or nicotine replacement therapy.  To find out more about these options click on stop smoking medication. Whichever one you choose we can help and support you whilst you are quitting.

Changing habits

Recognising and talking through your smoking habits and routines is another important part of giving up.

Our friendly and experienced advisors will take time to help you understand your smoking habits and how you can overcome them as well as supporting you through any challenges along the way. We have smoking clinics across the city so there will be one close to you.

 If you would like to speak to one of our team to find out more please give us a call on 0300 123 3791.
