Our Stop Smoking Advisers will support you throughout your quit attempt and will see you until you feel completely confident to remain smoke free.
The first appointment is usually booked to last 30 minutes. At this appointment the adviser will ask you about any quit attempts you may have had in the past and look at your current smoking habit and then help you make a plan for stopping.
You will also be asked to do a simple breath test to look at carbon monoxide levels in your breath. This helps to determine your dependency levels and the amount and type of medication you might need.
Varenicline and Nicotine Replacement Therapy are all available on prescription and these medications will be discussed with you on your first appointment.
