The NHS has stop smoking services staffed by trained stop smoking advisers all over the country in a range of venues at times to suit you.

An Overview of Stop Smoking

Smoking damages your body in many ways. From the day-to-day effects on your heart and your breathing, to longer-term smoking-related diseases such as heart disease, cancer and stroke. Your smoke can harm your family's health, too.

The NHS has stop smoking services staffed by trained stop smoking advisers all over the country in a range of venues at times to suit you. You can join a group where local smokers meet once a week or have one-to-one support if you prefer. You usually go for a few weeks and work towards a quit date.

Benefits

If you smoke, quitting is one of the best things you'll ever do for your health. As soon as you stop smoking you'll see the benefits to your everyday life, health and wallet. And your family will thank you for it, too.

Stopping smoking has been found to slow facial ageing and delay the appearance of wrinkles. People breathe more easily and cough less when they give up smoking because their lung capacity improves by up to 10% within nine months.

Involvement

There are lots of ways to quit, from using nicotine replacement therapies or e-cigarettes, to free quit tools and expert support from local NHS stop smoking services. You can put together a package that fits into your lifestyle. What are you waiting for? You can quit today!
