Quit Smoking Today With Our 1-To-1 Support
Quitting smoking will be on the best decisions you make for your health. Here are the most important reasons to quit:
Smoking causes terrible damage to your body
The secondhand smoke you create causes problems for everybody around you
Smoking is expensive – the cost adds up every single day
The Benefits Of Quitting Smoking
Reduce your risk of developing illness, disability or death caused by cancer, heart or lung disease.
Protect those around you (particularly children) by not exposing them to second hand smoke.
Improve your breathing and general fitness – your energy levels will quickly increase when you stop. When you smoke your red blood cells take up carbon monoxide gas instead of oxygen (including 4,000 other chemicals) – this makes you breathless. This also thickens your blood which can contribute to Cardiovascular disease.
Save you money – a considerable amount. Smoking 10 cigarettes a day, over a year would cost you £1,000!
Improve your appearance. Soon after you stop, your skin will be brighter and your hair won’t smell of stale smoke. It’ll be easier to keep your teeth white and in the longer term it will help you slow the signs of aging.
Improve your sense of taste and smell.
It takes about ten minutes to smoke a cigarette, so a ten-a-day smoker can save nearly two hours a day when they quit. Over the course of a year, you can claim back a month of lost time.
Many smokers are shocked to find how quickly they get hooked on smoking. Stopping is a real achievement and can give you a real boost in confidence and self-esteem.

PRAISE FOR OUR SMOKING TEAM
My name is Anthony and I have just completed the 12 week nicotene replacement therapy.
I had been smoking since the age of 15 and the thought of quitting seemed an impossibility. Throughout the 12 weeks I received great advice from the Councillor Stephanie, who was always willing to help with solid advice when needed.
She made the process much easier, and when I did slip up and smoke, I wasn't afraid to inform her, which helped my progress to move forward.
I'm now smoke free and very much appreciate all the advice and help which I received. Without this service I would still be smoking, so thank you for all your support.
