Success Story – “The day that changed my life”

Did you know you are 3x more likely to successfully quit smoking with support than by going it alone?

We understand that every smoker is an individual and so is their journey to quitting smoking.

We offer free, professional, one-to-one support and a range of different medications to help beat cravings. We also fully support anyone who chooses to use an electronic cigarette as a way to quit smoking, and offer all of the same professional one-to-one advice and support that we do to people who choose to use products that we can prescribe.

It all starts with a quick chat with our professional, friendly, non -judgmental team who have over 70 years combined experience in helping smokers to quit.  Just like this lady did:


“I first met Jackie at work, she was a customer in the shop and overheard me talking to a colleague saying I would love to give up smoking. I was explaining that I would love to give up smoking but having no willpower and coping with the recent loss of my dear dad, I thought I had no chance or hope at kicking the habit.

Jackie had a chat with me and made me change not only the way I looked at giving up also how I dealt with the grief of my father passing away. With Jackie’s support and encouragement, I decided to arrange my first meeting with the Stop Smoking Team. I am so glad I did, the regular support sessions helped me not only to quit smoking but also to realise that my dad would have been so proud of me if I could give up smoking.

With that thought in my mind and Jackie’s amazing help and counselling sessions I managed to kick the habit for good, something I never thought I would be able to do. I have been a non-smoker for over 3 years and feel amazing. I can never thank the Stop Smoking Team enough for helping me to change my life for the better.”
