Hear about Karla's QUIT journey on the video below:

Smoking tobacco produces high levels of carbon monoxide which is inhaled directly into a smokers’ lungs and build up throughout the day. This increases the risks of developing smoking related illnesses. The good news is that quitting smoking stops this risk immediately and you will be free from CO within 24hrs after stopping. We can offer you a reading of your levels whilst smoking.  If you would like to know your level of carbon monoxide (CO) please let the staff know and we will arrange to meet you face to face.

Testimonials

I'm still not smoking after 6 months and I still use my Inhalator occasionally as it helps with missing any hand to mouth activity I 'me feeling well and I've been getting out and about with my family using my mobility bike I recently visited Chester Zoo and had a lovely day. I would recommend the Stop smoking service to friends and family because the regular calls from my advisor Christine and being able to easily access for whatever I needed helped so much to keep me smoke free.

Linda

I have not smoked now for 4 months, and I have never in my life lasted this long not smoking, this is due to the help I have with Sandra my advisor she has been such a star. Still taking one day at a time like Sandra said but I’m doing it. What a great service!!

I’m feeling great since quitting smoking my breathing has improved and I feel much better in general, and I've saved money from not buying cigarettes. Christine my advisor has been brilliant and I would definitely recommend the service to anyone wanting to stop.

Donna

I had weekly calls with Lisa and I never thought at first I'd ever be able to quit, with her support , advice and patience she helped me to gain confidence that I could. I used champix too and have not smoked for 6 months now. I'm so proud of myself and I couldn't have done it without Lisa's help.

Everything about my experience with this service was wonderful from the beginning when I called and spoke to a lady called Sue who explained the process to speaking to my advisor Sandra who for the past 4 months has helped me more than she will ever know. Everyone I spoke to was very knowledgeable and professional. I never thought I would stop smoking so late in life, but Sandra has helped me to achieve this, and I am utterly grateful to her for this. I feel like I have my life back from those pesky cigs, so thank you so much for your help.

Paul is Celebrating his 1st year anniversary of being smokefree today 02/08/2021. He was a heavy chain smoker and since quitting he feels so much healthier and better. He said he couldn’t have done it without my support

Have spoken to Danielle twice, have been using the inhalator and gum to help me stop vaping. I've noticed a massive difference in just a few weeks, I have been breathing better with not using the vape, I've not needed to use my inhaler for my asthma. Me and my family also went to Alton Towers for 2 days and I did 18,000 steps and it was such an amazing feeling not being out of breath.

“I can’t believe I have stopped smoking, I have tried so many times to stop but the longest I quit for is a couple of days now I am approaching 4 weeks and I’d like to thank you personally as you have helped me take control of so many things in my life, and now because I have stopped smoking I feel I have the control in my life back. You gave me the confidence to tackle something that I have buried for years and now I have tackled it head on I feel amazing and like a huge weight has lifted from me.  I can’t thank you enough for this and helping me feel me again after all these years.

Stop smoking

I've been smoking for 50 odd years and never thought I'd be able to do it. Danielle has really been there for me and kept in contact each week. I feel so much better, I'm breathing better, I can taste my food more, and I can walk longer through town without having to stop. I'm so grateful for the service for making me feel better.

“Sandra called me about stopping smoking. I felt really relaxed and happy talking to her. I then went straight for an interview, and got the job. I still haven’t had a cigarette!”

 

Stop smoking

I have smoked since I was 9 and tried to quit about 5 times, I felt like a slave, I always had to have a fully charged vape next to me and would vape constantly, now after taking to Sandra my stop smoking advisers, I no longer feel enslaved by nicotine. Our weekly chats and Sandra’s encouragement helped me to stay on track during my quit journey. I was never judged and was always supported. Knowing Sandra is an ex-smoker herself makes it more powerful as it’s not just someone using the right words.

Annie

What a wonderful service, I was blessed with Sandra who has made my transition from a smoker to a non-smoker much easier than anticipated. I have not had a single cigarette for over 3 months now which is amazing. I feel fabulous . So thank you so much for giving me the help I needed and all your understanding and support Sandra. You are wonderful!!

Stop smoking

 I feel I have more energy since I quit smoking and the calls from Christine had been a great in helping me to quit.

 

Mark

I haven't smoked now for over 3 months and it is brilliant. I have noticed a big difference in going to the gym, I feel so much healthier and can do more. Thank you Sandra for all your help you have been brilliant.
