Want to stop smoking?

No one needs telling that smoking’s bad for your health (not to mention bank balance) but giving up is another matter. If you’ve tried stopping or always thought it would be too hard then our local Stop Smoking service is for you. People who get help to stop are three times more likely to stop for good.

Why you should stop smoking

No matter how long you’ve been smoking, you’ll feel the benefits of giving up almost straight away. Your taste and smell will get better in just a few days, plus as your lungs clear you won’t get out of breath so quickly. If your loved ones are non-smokers, you’ll also improve their lives. And don’t forget about how much money you’ll be saving, the average smoker spends over £4000 every year on smoking. That’s enough for a family holiday to America every year.
