There are several ways to attempt quitting smoking;
- With one-to-one assistance from the local stop smoking service – one-to-one support services and free medications are offered for up to 12 weeks to help in a quiet endeavor. Research suggests this is the most effective way to leave – with smokers 4 times more likely to rest well than without help.
