10 steps to stopping smoking

Stopping smoking isn't easy, but there are things you can do to improve your chances of success. Read our ten top tips:

1. Pick a quit date Choose a day that will be stress-free, and stick to it.

2. Make a list Write down all the reasons you want to quit. Keep the list handy and read it when the cravings start.

3. Support network Pair up with someone else who’s looking to give up smoking and support each other.

Before your quit date, get rid of ashtrays, lighters and matches, and any remaining cigarettes.

5. Stop smoking services Contact your local NHS Stop Smoking Service for support from trained specialists.

6. Nicotine replacement therapy Consider using nicotine replacement therapy, which can more than double your chances of stopping smoking.

7. Start moving Scientific studies have proven that exercise, as little as a five minute walk or stretch, cuts the urge to smoke and may even help your brain produce anti-craving chemicals.

8. Avoid trigger situations Anticipate stressful or trigger situations. So, if you smoke after a meal, go for a short walk instead.

9. Practise saying “no” Don’t be tempted by just one cigarette; it often leads to another.

10. Treat yourself Put away some, or all, of the money you would have spent on cigarettes and buy something special.

Always very welcoming, friendly and reassuring.
