What is Stop Smoking?

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.

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.

Benefits

Stopping smoking has been found to slow facial ageing and delay the appearance of wrinkles. People breathe more easily and cough less when they give up smoking because their lung capacity improves by up to 10% within nine months.

Involvement

Find your nearest NHS Stop Smoking Service from the NHS Smokefree website, or call the Smokefree National Helpline to speak to a trained adviser on 0300 123 1044.
