It is never too late to stop smoking, if you are serious about stopping your doctor will provide help and information about the local smoking cessation group. This will mean that you will get support from fellow smokers who wish to give up.

  • Smoking kills over 100,000 people per year in the United Kingdom.

  • Smokers are more likely to get ill and die earlier than non-smokers.

  • Nicotine is ten times more addictive than heroin.
    The Smoking Cessation Group has a number of tips to help you stop:

  • Plan your attempt to quit smoking

  • Pick a date and keep to it

  • Support from family and friends is vital

  • Reward yourself with 'treats' from the money you save
