Stop Smoking

Updated on 10th March 2020 at 3:55 pm


Stopping smoking is one of the best things you’ll ever do for your health.

If you want to stop smoking, you can make small changes to your lifestyle that may help you resist the temptation to light up.

Think positive

You might have tried to quit smoking before and not managed it, but don’t let that put you off. Look back at the things your experience has taught you and think about how you’re really going to do it this time. For more information Click here.

Alternatively you might want to visit one of our selected pharmacies across North Tyneside, where you’re four times more likely to quit with support and treatment from a trained stop smoking adviser versus going it alone. Support provided is FREE, friendly and informal Stop Smoking leaflet.

E-cigarettes allow you to inhale nicotine through vapour rather than smoke. This vapour doesn’t contain tar or carbon monoxide, two of the most harmful elements in tobacco smoke. Using an e-cigarette isn’t completely risk-free, but it carries a small fraction of the risk of smoking and can help you quit.
E-cigarettes can also be used together with support from local stop smoking services.
