Personalised stop smoking support
Quitting smoking is undoubtedly one of the most significant steps you can take to boost your health. However, we understand that it can be a challenging journey.
For people who are ready to embark on the path to a smoke-free life, we’re here to lend a helping hand!
Research shows that two-thirds of smokers express a desire to quit, yet most attempt to do so without any assistance, which is often the least effective approach. By seeking the right support, smokers increase their chances of successfully quitting by threefold. This is why we proudly offer complimentary one-on-one support sessions, available to all adults residing, working, or studying in Newcastle.
Our personalised one-on-one support is tailored to the individuals unique needs and provides the latest information on the various treatment options at your disposal.
We understand the importance of convenience, so we can arrange one-on-one appointments. Additionally, we offer group support options for workplaces and community groups, ensuring that you have the right resources to quit successfully. Your journey to a healthier, smoke-free life starts here.
