Has your smoking habit run out of puff?
Discover how we can help you quit smoking for good
We all know of the serious health risks that come with a smoking habit, as well as the sheer expense that smoking entails these days. Both of these are fairly compelling reasons for you to consider quitting, and we’re here to help.
Your local Stop Smoking service – open to smokers aged 50 and over and live in one of the 52 identified wards in Staffordshire – is designed to help you not just give up in the short term, but to quit smoking for good. Our specially-trained experts provide completely free advice, support and encouragement on how best to go about quitting smoking for good, something which studies show you’re four times more likely to do if you make use of both the specialist support and medication we offer.
They’re aware of all the difficulties you face when quitting and offer free one-to-one support, as well as group sessions over a 12 week period. Your dedicated stop smoking advisor will put together a unique programme that’s been tailored to your needs. This includes advice on choosing a suitable stop smoking medication and information on how to manage cravings and withdrawal symptoms, with support to make long term behaviour changes.
Appointments with your advisor are available at GP practices, pharmacies and community locations across the county, putting the service easily within your reach, while telephone support is available via our dedicated phone line on 0333 005 0095.
