Stoptober 2023: Commit to quit!

Stoptober has helped more than 2.5 million people across England make quit attempts since its launch in 2012. If a smoker can make it to 28 days smoke free, they are five times more likely to quit for good.

10.2% of Wiltshire residents still smoke, if you're one of them are you ready to commit to quit? Smoking is the leading preventable cause of premature death and this Stoptober we want to help to get this number down! Our brilliant health coaches are on hand to offer you all the support you need to stop smoking for good. You can receive support either face to face or online and be provided with behavioural support, nicotine replacement therapy or an e-cigarette, whichever suits you best. For more information visit - Wiltshire Health Improvement Hub.

You can also use the NHS Better Health App. The app allows you to track your progress, see how much money you're saving, receive daily support and much more.

Support to quit

Our trained stop smoking advisors offer friendly, non-judgemental advice and support across the county. The advisors can give you tips and information while working with you to beat your cravings and change your smoking habits. Your advisor can also discuss the range of stop smoking medications and help to choose the right one for you. Nicotine replacement therapy, Champix and Zyban are available on prescription. If you would like to use an electronic cigarette or vaporiser, we can still help you break free from tobacco use. Let your advisor know that you have your own device and they can work with you to stop smoking.

Your first session will last for 20-30 minutes with follow-up sessions of 10 minutes to complete the 12-week course. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic most local stop smoking services are being delivered remotely

Support is available in most GP surgeries as well as through the Health Improvement Coaches
