Our free stop smoking service gives you access to a dedicated advisor who will support you throughout your quit attempt. We will see you (up to a maximum of 12 appointments) to help you remain smoke free.
What you get:
We will contact you to arrange a suitable time for your first appointment. During this 30 min appointment you will discuss any concerns you have about quitting, the benefits you are hoping to get from stopping smoking and how the appointments and medication work.
Nicotine replacement therapy comes in a variety of forms. The Stop Smoking practitioner will discuss with you the type of NRT which might work best for you. It will be posted to your address, or if you are requesting medication, your practitioner will ask your GP to prescribe this.
The practitioner will help you plan and prepare for your quit date, taking into account any concerns or barriers you may feel towards quitting.
The programme runs for a total of 12 weeks. Each appointment lasts around 15 minutes where the practitioner will review your quit product (e.g. NRT) and discuss any concerns or struggles you might have had that week.
This is a great goal to aim for – research has shown that if you quit for 28 days, you’re 5 times more likely to quit for good. Your practitioner will help adjust any NRT requirements you may have at this point.
Congratulations you have reached the end of the course and are a fully fledged non-smoker!
We will keep in touch to offer any further support that you might need through our other pathways. And if a relapse does occur, remember you can always come back and try again.

“These people who help you on your journey are the most friendly, helpful and approachable people. They DO NOT JUDGE you. Neeve, who helped me was fantastic and the encouragement she provided spurred me on even more.”
“Snahal has been brilliant at praising me every week, I have looked forward to being able to tell her that I am still smoke free. I really think that the weekly calls have kept me going, when I had bad days I thought about her advice and it helped.”
“I was smoking about 20 a day and cut down to 2-5 daily and then managed to cut them out with the support and help from Tutua and the products she was sending. I use the products when I'm having a bad day, but it has been the best decision I have made. I have my mind set not to go back to smoking after pregnancy!”
