Anyone who has quit smoking or tried to quit knows how hard it can be. The Highland Smoking Cessation Service is here to help!
They have a network of trained Smoking Cessation Advisers who can provide FREE advice and support to anyone who is thinking about stopping smoking.
What help is available……
- You may just want to talk to someone by 'phone and arrange for some information to be sent to you.
- You may want to speak face to face with a Smoking Cessation Adviser. He or she will have an initial meeting with you to discuss what options are available to help you quit and to help you prepare and plan for stopping smoking. Our service is based on what has been shown to work - people are 4 times more likely to quit smoking of they use smoking cessation services alongside NRT.
- If you decide to go ahead, they will help you arrange to get the medication most suited to you. We’ll see you again at least 3 or 4 times to help iron out any problems and give you support and encouragement over the first few weeks of quitting.
- If you decide at any point that this isn’t the right time for you to quit, don’t worry! They will be happy to see you again in the future when you do want to go ahead.
