Want to Stop Smoking?

 

 

NHS Choices suggest eight practical, quick and simple steps you can take straight away to quit smoking

 

 1. Talk to your GP


Many people don't realise that their GP can help them quit smoking. But your doctor can do a lot, such as enrolling you in a 'stop smoking' clinic and prescribing nicotine replacement therapy such as patches and gum, or stop smoking medication such as Champix.  

 

2. Join an NHS Stop Smoking Service


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.

 

Find your nearest NHS Stop Smoking Service from the NHS Smokefree website, or call 0800 022 4332.

 

Smoke Free Norfolk hold weekly clinics at Coltishall Surgery on Tuesday mornings.

 

3. Get a free 'Quit Kit'


The kit is packed with practical tools and advice to help you stop smoking, including a 'tangle' to keep hands busy, a wallchart to keep track of your progress, stress-busting MP3 downloads, information on medicines that can help you stop smoking and exercises to improve your willpower.

 

Order your Quit Kit online.
