Quit Smoking with 1:1 advice at the SurgeryHealth Advice - Quitting Smoking

It is never too late to stop smoking.

  • Smoking kills over 100,000 people per year in the United Kingdom.
  • Smokers are more likely to get ill and die earlier than non-smokers.
  • Nicotine is ten times more addictive than heroin.


The Smoking Cessation Group has a number of tips to help you stop:

  • Plan your attempt to quit smoking
  • Pick a date and keep to it
  • Support from family and friends is vital
  • Reward yourself with 'treats' from the money you save
  • Always take one day at a time
  • Be positive

Your Doctor will be able to advise you about Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT). NRT increases your chances of quitting successfully. The products are available on prescription.
