Help me quit smoking
At the Cheshire Change Hub we run a FREE stop smoking service in association with Quit 51. Once we have made contact your stop smoking practitioner will be able to discuss the best way to stop smoking and will guide you through the range of options that can help you to quit for good.
Getting support in the early days of quitting is important, so ideally we’d like to see you at least every week in the first month. We will be really flexible, and can offer morning, afternoon, evening and weekend appointments to suit you.
We will support you through your quit attempt, and we hope to keep in touch for around 8 to 12 weeks to ensure you get access to the treatments that can really help when giving up smoking.
Giving up isn’t easy, but we know you’re 4 times more likely to quit with us than going it alone. Any time you want to give quitting a go, we are here to support you, so even if you’ve tried before, our door is always open so please call us on 0300 777 0033 and we will arrange for one of our stop smoking specialists to call you to arrange your first session!
