NHS Choices suggest eight practical, quick and simple steps you can take straight away to quit smoking

 

 1. Talk to your GP


Many people don't realise that their GP can help them quit smoking. But your doctor can do a lot, such as enrolling you in a 'stop smoking' clinic and prescribing nicotine replacement therapy such as patches and gum, or stop smoking medication such as Champix.  

 

Find out more about how your GP can help you quit.  

 

2. Join an NHS Stop Smoking Service


The NHS has stop smoking services staffed by trained stop smoking advisers all over the country in a range of venues at times to suit you. You can join a group where local smokers meet once a week or have one-to-one support if you prefer. You usually go for a few weeks and work towards a quit date.

 

Find your nearest NHS Stop Smoking Service from the NHS Smokefree website, or call 0800 022 4332.

 

3. Get a free 'Quit Kit'


The kit is packed with practical tools and advice to help you stop smoking, including a 'tangle' to keep hands busy, a wallchart to keep track of your progress, stress-busting MP3 downloads, information on medicines that can help you stop smoking and exercises to improve your willpower.

 

Order your Quit Kit online.

 

4. Get a 'cheerleader' and stop smoking together


Sign up for the NHS Smokefree Together Programme and you'll receive a supportive phone call, email and text the week before you quit, the day you quit and the following week.

 

5. Have an emergency phone number


Keep an emergency number, perhaps for your local NHS Stop Smoking Service.

6. Consider using NRT


Nicotine is addictive, and self-control alone might not be enough. Give yourself a better chance of success by using nicotine replacement therapy (NRT). This is available either free or on prescription from your GP, depending on where you live or from your local NHS Stop Smoking Service.

 

Find your nearest NHS Stop Smoking Service from the NHS Smokefree website, or call 0800 022 4332. Or, you can buy nicotine patches, gum and so on over the counter from a pharmacy.

 

7. Email an expert


Ask an expert for advice through NHS Smokefree's Ask an expert service.

 

8. Get online help


Use our stop smoking tool to get daily tips for success.
