Giving up smoking is going to be difficult, but in doing so you'll feel better for it and increase your chances of living longer. Here are some practical steps you can take straight away to quit smoking.

Join your local stop smoking service

Did you know that you're up to four times more likely to quit successfully with the help of your local stop smoking service?

New Leaf offers support to quit smoking through the NHS and it's right on your doorstep. Support is given by trained stop smoking advisers and you can choose whether to attend a local group session or have one-to-one support if you prefer. 

To find a clinic near you visit the Smoke Free Life Nottinghamshire website or call 0115 934 9526.

Get advice from Smokefree

Get free, proven support and advice from Smokefree. Millions have used Smokefree support to help them stop smoking. Get free support using their app, Quit Kit, email, SMS and face-to-face. 

Sign up today by visiting the Smokefree website and increase your chances of success, even if you’re already using e‑cigarettes or stop smoking medication.

Talk to your GP

Many people don't realise that their GP can help them quit smoking. Your doctor can do a lot, such as enrolling you in a 'stop smoking' clinic and prescribing nicotine replacement therapy such as patches and gum, or stop smoking medication such as Champix.

Find out more about how your GP can help you quit on the NHS choices website.
