Want to stop smoking? It doesn’t need to be a drag
No one needs telling that smoking’s bad for your health (not to mention bank balance) but giving up is another matter. If you’ve tried stopping or always thought it was too difficult then our Stop Smoking service is for you. People who’ve used this service don’t just stop in the short term; studies have shown they are three times more likely to stop for good. That’s because you get support and encouragement from your own stop smoking advisor.
Why you should stop smoking No matter how long you’ve been smoking, you’ll feel the benefits of giving up almost immediately. Your ability to taste and smell will improve in a matter of days, plus as your lungs clear you’ll find you’re much less likely to get out of breath. If your loved ones are non-smokers, you’ll also improve their lives. No-one will miss having to pop out in the cold or rain for a nicotine fix! And don’t forget the money you’ll be saving, the average smoker spends over £4k every year on smoking. That’s enough for a family holiday to America each year.
How we can support you to stop smoking Giving up smoking isn’t easy, but you won’t be alone. You’ll have 12 weeks of support with one of our dedicated stop smoking practitioners. Support is offered virtually online or over the telephone or in community-based venues across Devon.
We’ll also be able to arrange for you to receive the best Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) products including gum, nasal sprays and patches on prescription from your GP or provide it directly to you at your session or posted to your home address, free of charge if you are eligible. These products will help manage your cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
