Stopping smoking isn’t easy, but there is support available in Brent to help you kick the habit.
NHS stop smoking advisers are free, friendly and flexible and can massively boost your chances of quitting for good.
The NHS Stop Smoking Service is a national network of advisers who are trained to help you quit. They will give you accurate information and advice on how to quit, and give you professional support during the first few weeks after you have stopped smoking.
They also make it easy and affordable for you to get stop smoking treatment, such as Champix (varenicline) or Zyban (bupropion) if it’s suitable for you, or nicotine replacement therapy such as patches and gum.
You will normally be offered a one-to-one appointment with an adviser, but many areas also offer group and drop-in services as well. Depending on where you live, the venue could be a local GP surgery, pharmacy, high street shop or even a mobile bus clinic.
