Help you quit smoking

Why Quit 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.

 

No matter how long you’ve smoked for, quitting can help improve your health straight away.

Your first stop smoking appointment will last for 30 minutes. At this appointment the advisor will ask you about any quit attempts you may have had in the past and look at your current smoking habit.

 

You will also be asked to do a simple breath test to look at carbon monoxide levels in your breath. This helps to determine your dependency levels and the amount and type of medication you might need.

 

Nicotine Replacement Therapy is available on prescription and these medications will be discussed with you on your first appointment.

 

If you would like to be seen with another family member or friend this can be arranged.
