NHS Support to Quit Smoking
We know that smoking is bad for our health and can increase the risk of developing serious health conditions, including COPD and cancer. However, it can also have a negative impact on our mental health, as well as our bank accounts.
We understand that people often smoke to help them cope, especially when many of us have money worries right now. However, for people who are already struggling, smoking can actually make your mental health and money worries worse. For example, if you smoke twenty cigarettes per day, then quitting could save you at least £3115* per year (source ASH Scotland).
Quit Your Way is NHS Lanarkshire’s free stop smoking service and offers 12 weeks of support to anyone who smokes, including free nicotine replacement therapy, and specialist support to quit for pregnant women and those with mental health problems. Even if you have tried to stop before without success – we know nicotine is a powerful, addictive drug - we’re here to help and support you when you feel ready.
