Where can you go for help?

For smoking-related illness, speak with your local pharmacist or your GP.

For help in quitting smoking:

The best way for smokers to improve their overall health is to stop smoking completely. How you choose to quit is up to you but prescription medication and support from a specialist at your local stop smoking service gives you the best possible chance of stopping successfully. Quitting smoking can be hard but it is much easier with support.

Talk to your local GP, Pharmacist, practice nurse, midwife, health visitor or other health care professional.

They can offer advice and directly refer you to the local stop smoking service.

If you are thinking of ‘going it alone’ consider using a nicotine-containing product like patches, gum or an electronic cigarette.

Cigarettes are very addictive, and self-control alone might not be enough for you to stop entirely.

Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) is available to buy on prescription from a pharmacist or local store

You could also consider trying e-cigarettes. While they're not risk free, they are very much safer than cigarettes and can help people stop smoking.
