What to expect
When you join we'll get you working with a trained adviser; either in a group or one-to-one. The sessions usually start a couple of weeks before you quit.
Why it helps
Your adviser will be able to tell you about nicotine replacement products and other stop smoking medicines, and recommend which product or combination of products could work for you.
We use a carbon monoxide monitor to measure your levels of carbon monoxide. This is a great motivational tool because it helps you to see the benefits of giving up smoking.
Many people find that sharing the experience with others is really helpful in itself.

Real quitters who have used their local NHS Stop Smoking Service (video)
Meet Michelle, a mother of two young children from Yorkshire, who went smokefree after 17 years by making use of the Smokefree Together programme.
How Michelle gave up for good
Michelle had been smoking for more than half her life when she found herself becoming increasingly concerned about her health and her ability to look after her children in the future.
Michelle was deeply shocked when someone close to her died of a smoking-related illness and she decided to look online and find out more about quitting smoking.
She decided to combine three of the different options available to her to stop smoking, signing up to the Smokefree Together programme and also making use of local NHS services and Nicotine Replacement Therapy.
This combined approach really worked for Michelle: "The Smokefree Together programme really helped by constantly reminding me that I did not want to be a smoker. I also went to one-to-one sessions, where the adviser arranged for me to get a nicotine replacement program... The support I received from the NHS was nothing short of fantastic!"
