Stopping at the same time as other people can really help you on your smoke free journey and many people who have joined one of our groups recommend it to friends and colleagues.
We tend to run group sessions around October (for Stoptober) and January (to help keep those new year’s resolutions). Here are just some of the ways our groups can help:
- Tips and ideas on how to succeed
- Support and camaraderie from other people stopping at the same time
- A choice of medications
- Breath tests to check your progress and show you how much your body is improving without tobacco
- Some fun and welcome distractions to keep you going
During your sessions we will give you information and discuss how to choose the treatment that would suit you best and help you while you stop smoking. This includes patches, gum, nasal spray, lozenges, inhalators or Champix.
If you vape you can bring along your e-cig and we’ll incorporate that into your quit programme.
We also help you set a quit date, which is the day you stop smoking for good (it’s not as scary as it sounds!) and in the group people discuss their progress, giving each other ideas on managing their cravings and alternatives to smoking. Our experienced advisors are always on hand to give you information and encouragement.
