Stop Smoking Service

Stopping smoking increases your life expectancy and helps improve your quality of life, not to mention making you wealthier as well!

It is never too late to stop and the NHS is here to help you.
Getting NHS support really works – it can be four times more successful than going it alone (cold turkey) and it’s completely free of charge. So why not try it? You have nothing to lose.

We can help you quit – your way 

Giving up smoking is not something you have to do on your own – there’s a free NHS stop smoking service available within Maryhill Health and Care Centre to help you succeed. If you’re thinking about stopping smoking, take the first step now. We’d love to help you find your way to give up for good – no pressure, just support.

Stopping smoking is the best thing you can do to improve your health. Think of the potential benefits:

  • have more money
  • feel better
  • look better
  • smell and taste food better
  • sleep better
  • breathe more easily
  • feel more relaxed
  • get praise from family or friends
  • have a better quality of life.

Getting the right support is vital

While some people do stop smoking at their first attempt, many take several attempts to give up for good. You’re up to three times as likely to stop smoking successfully if you use an NHS stop smoking service, compared to trying to stop on your own. Talk to your local stop smoking advisor for free support and advice. This may include access to free treatments, including nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), or Champix. 

Who can take part?

Everyone can get free support. Your local stop smoking advisor will discuss the range of options available and you choose the best approach for you. We’ll be with you throughout your quit journey and can give you all the support you need. Even if you’re using an e-cigarette to help you stop smoking, you can still get our support
