Support to quit smoking 

We can give you free, flexible, friendly support to help you quit.

Our support can include: 

  • Specialist one to one support and advice 
  • Nicotine replacement therapy
  • Text or WhatsApp support from a Peer Pal - a trained person who has been there, done it and can help you with the challenges ahead. You may want to message your Peer Pal if you're finding it hard and need some support. It's up to you.

You are three times more likely to quit with our support.

There are lots of reasons to quit smoking. For information about the benefits of quitting, visit NHS: Quit smoking.
