Stop smoking help from your GP
If you don't want to go to an NHS Stop Smoking service, your GP can still offer treatment to help you quit.
You'll be assessed to get an idea of your level of addiction and to outline the benefits of quitting. This is also a chance to identify potential triggers, such as if you live with others who smoke or you're under stress.
Your GP can prescribe several different stop smoking treatments. The type prescribed will depend on your personal preference and whether you've used any before. Read more about how your GP can help you to quit smoking.
Read on to learn about the different treatments you may be offered. You can also see a summary of the pros and cons of these treatments, which allows you to easily compare your options.
Passive smoking: protect your family and friends
The best way to protect others from your secondhand smoke is to keep the environment around them smoke free. Includes advice on e-cigs.
