Our Tobacco Free Future
Did you know that you are up to four times more likely to be able to quit smoking if you get some support, rather than going cold turkey or attempting to do it alone? And the good news is - there is plenty of support out there from your local Stop Smoking Services. Research also suggests that nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), such as patches, gum or e-cigarettes is a useful aid that will double your chances of successfully quitting compared with willpower alone. It is often said that every journey begins with a single step. That first step to quitting smoking could be asking your GP to help you get the support that's available for free. If you don't want to see a GP, any pharmacist or chemist should be able to offer advice. You may also want to find out about one-to-one and group support sessions with trained stop smoking advisors. These sessions have helped lots of people become ex-smokers.
