Our Stop Smoking Service, in partnership with Waltham Forest Council
What does the service provide?
Everyone’s aware of the health risks that come with smoking. The warnings are plain to see, adorning the TV, news and the packaging itself, while the vast expense of maintaining a smoking habit these days gives you even more reason to consider kicking the habit.
Your local Stop Smoking service – open to any smokers living, working or studying in Waltham Forest – is designed to help you quit smoking for good, not just in the short term, but to initiate long-term behavioural and lifestyle changes, too. Our highly-trained specialists provide advice, support and encouragement on how best to go about quitting smoking for good, something which studies show is four times more likely if you make use of both the specialist support and medication we have on offer.
Our experts know the challenges you face when trying to quit and offer free one-to-one support, as well as 12 weekly group sessions. Your own dedicated adviser will put together a bespoke plan that’s been tailored specifically to your requirements. This includes advice and information on how to manage cravings and withdrawal symptoms, with support to make long-term behaviour changes, as well as giving advice on how to choose the stop smoking medication that’s right for you.
You can make appointments to see their advisor through their local GP practices, pharmacies and other community locations throughout the local area, meaning support is always within reach.
Furthermore, we also have a dedicated phone line that’s contactable on 0333 005 0095, meaning you can talk to an adviser whenever they need to, especially if you feel your resolve weakening.
