We all know that smoking’s bad for your health (not to mention bank balance) but giving up is another matter. If you’ve tried quitting or always thought it was too difficult then our Stop Smoking service is for you. People who’ve used this service don’t just quit in the short term; studies have shown they are four times more likely to quit for good. That’s because you get support and encouragement from your own stop smoking advisor.
Why you should quit 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 by reducing second-hand smoke. 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 help you quit smoking
Giving up smoking isn’t easy, but you won’t be alone. You’ll have 12 weeks of one-to-one phone sessions with a dedicated stop smoking practitioner. We are also able to supply free nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) products or Champix medication to help manage cravings and withdrawal symptoms.

Where you can get help to quit
We have resumed out Face to Face offering on with limited venues across Staffordshire. We will be able to speak to you directly about the Stop Smoking service and provide you with NRT to take home straight away. There is an opportunity for you to see how much Carbon Monoxide (CO) is in your body through a simple test by blowing through a tube. It can be amazing to see the numbers reduce as you become a non-smoker!
Our Stop Smoking service is still continuing via a telephone-based service, where you will receive weekly one to one calls to advise and support you on your quit journey. Any NRT will be sent directly to your door after your appointment.
If you’re 40 or above, contact us on 03330 050095 to see if you are eligible.
You may also be able to make an appointment with an advisor via your GP or pharmacy.
