Ways to quit
Nicotine therapy is usually offered as part of your stop smoking plan of treatment for all smokers aged 12 and over registering a quit attempt with St Helens Smokefree. Currently there are many products available, and your advisor will discuss which product will suit you. They are prescribed at your local pharmacy by presenting your nicotine voucher code or on prescription.
Using nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) will increase the chances of you quitting significantly and will help you to manage withdrawal symptoms. This includes using a single nicotine therapy like a patch, gum, mouth or nasal spray, an inhalator or Lozenge or it can be a combination of two products, depending on individual needs.
