Stop smoking

Stopping smoking is the single most important thing you can do to improve your health and bank balance.

Quit Your Way logo

We can help you quit - your way

Giving up smoking is not something you have to do on your own - there's a free NHS stop smoking service available locally to help you succeed. You're up to three times more likely to stop smoking successfully if you use an NHS stop smoking service, compared to trying to stop on your own. We'd love to help you find your way to give up for good - no pressure, just support.

You choose the support you want

Talk to your local stop smoking adviser for FREE support and advice. This may include access to free treatments, including nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) or Champix. Here are the support options available to you:

  • one-to-one support
  • group support
  • community pharmacy support
  • telephone, text and email support
  • drop-in sessions
  • support if you are pregnant or in hospital
  • support if you use e-cigarettes
