If you want to stop smoking, several different treatments are available on prescription to help you beat your addiction and reduce withdrawal symptoms. The best treatment for you will depend on your personal preference, your age, whether you’re pregnant or breastfeeding and any medical conditions you have. Research has shown that the most effective methods always involve support from the NHS Stop Smoking Service. To access the service book an appointment with our Health Care Assistant or visit your local Pharmacy.
The NHS have produced “Smokefree”, a dedicated service to inform everyone of the dangers of smoking, the benefits to giving up and how they can help you kick the habit.
