If you are reading this then you have already taken the first step - well done. 

 

The decision to stop smoking may feel slightly overwhelming, but with the right help and support from family and friends you can do it. If you’ve tried to quit before and it didn’t work, don’t worry; use what you learned from previous attempts so you can be more successful.

Quitting Tips for young people
Everyone knows that smoking can cause cancer when you are older but many are unaware of the effects it’s having on their bodies right now. One cigarette contains 4000 chemicals. Every time you inhale cigarette smoke, small amounts of these chemicals go into your blood stream through your lungs and travel into all parts of your body.

Quitting Tips for young people

 Bullit

Choose the right time. Quitting during exam time is not very easy for some - consider delaying your attempt until after your exams when you are less likely to be stressed. 

 Bullit

Be prepared. Cravings can appear at any time during the first few weeks whilst your body is adjusting to being a non-smoker. A stress ball might be helpful or some sugar free gum or mints. The more prepared you are, the easier it will be. 

 Bullit

Tell your family and friends and ask them to support you. Ask them not to tease you about it. Try asking them not to smoke in front of you. 

 Bullit

Throw away all your cigarettes, lighters and ashtrays - as a non-smoker you won’t need them again.  

 Bullit

Choose a friend to help you. Arrange to call him / her at those times you feel you want to smoke. 

 Bullit

The Specialist Advisor can arrange for you to receive FREE Nicotine Replacement Therapy if necessary.
