Local stop-smoking services are beneficial, cost nothing, and greatly improve your chances of successfully quitting. These organisations, which are managed by knowledgeable pharmacists, provide a number of efficient cessation aids. In the first few months after you give up smoking, they will give you precise information, wise advice, and skilled assistance. Additionally, they help you get nicotine replacement therapy easily and affordably. These include nicotine patches, gum, and anti-smoking drugs like bupropion (Zyban). Are you trying to quit smoking? Get in touch for our effective stop smoking service on the NHS in Bury.
You might be able to participate in sessions by phone or video call if you are unable to attend in person. When you initially meet with a specialist, you’ll talk about your smoking habits, your intention to stop, and any prior attempts to stop. You will also be encouraged to decide on a quit date.
To find out how much carbon monoxide, a lethal substance present in cigarette smoke, is in your body, you’ll be given the choice to do a breath test.
During your initial session, you’ll discuss the NHS-approved quit-smoking programmes that are accessible to you.
These include nicotine replacement therapy including patches, lozenges, gum, inhalers, and oral and nasal sprays, as well as Zyban stop smoking tablets (bupropion).
After quitting smoking, you’ll typically talk to your adviser once a week for the first four weeks, then less regularly for the next eight weeks. Besides having your carbon monoxide level checked, if you’re currently receiving stop smoking therapy, you’ll also receive a supply (or a prescription for one) at every session. If you’re experiencing problems, you can phone an after-hours emergency hotline to deal with cravings and avoid lighting up.
In the UK, e-cigarettes have become more and more popular as a quit smoking aid in recent years. They are also known as vapes or e-cigarettes, and they can help you give up smoking for good.
You can avoid smoking altogether by using an e-cigarette to inhale nicotine vapour. Tar and carbon monoxide, the two most dangerous substances in tobacco smoke, are not created by using e-cigarettes.
They work by heating a liquid, which frequently contains propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, and/or flavourings.
However, we instead encourage you to visit us to help you determine the most effective way to quit for you.
Most people who consult an adviser will successfully quit smoking within the first month. Overall, your chances of successfully quitting smoking increase by up to three times if you utilise a variety of cessation methods and seek assistance from an NHS Stop Smoking Service.
You can evaluate your needs and create a custom approach to assist you in quitting. You can also talk to healthcare experts, including pharmacists, about any worries you have about stopping.
