Many smokers want to quit but aren't sure about the best way to go about it. There's lots of free support on offer and by using the support that's right for you, you'll be boosting your chance of quitting.

 

Thousands of people have quit for good with our help and studies show that you're up to four times more likely to quit successfully if you use a combination of stop smoking medicine and specialist help and support from your local NHS Stop Smoking Service.

Very nice link. I found it useful and hope other smokers also like it and get motivated to quit. Thanks

I have tried various methods to stop smoking over the years and managed to stop for six years once before being stupid enough to have a cigar in Cuba thinking it would be ok! How wrong. I have since used patches and inhalers, and then Zyban via my doctor. This made me very ill and I had to take time off work. I then started smoking again.

14 weeks ago I bought two copies of Alan Carrs Easy Way to Stop Smoking. It arrived on the Saturday morning and my partner and I both sat and read it from start to finish. We didn't intend to read it in one sitting, but we just did! The book says that you must continue to smoke all the way through which is excellent! We both finished the book at around 3pm, and were told to have our last cigarette. I lit up, had one puff, stubbed it out and haven't smoked since. And the good news is I know I will never smoke again. Nor will my partner!

There are no scare tactics (you know the dangers already). If it can work for me it can work for you. I was sceptical but it works. You've nothing to lose! Go and read the reviews on Amazon. It's the book with the red dot on the cover.

I quit on the 24th so I'm 6 days in. I got patches and the quickmist from the local cessation. But, I only used one patch and haven't used the mist at all in the last 2 days. I'm still going to attend the cessation tomorrow evening and will continue to do so until I'm completely sure that I don't need their support.

 

I have a picture of my son on the fridge with a list of reasons for quitting. As the kitchen was the place I smoked its a really good reminder when the craving kicks in....especially in the mornings!


:)I am not an expert, but I can give good advice about Brighthouse:)

 

Am learning more and more about DCA's too :)

 

I have no legal experience and all advice given is based on the knowledge I've gained from this site.
