It’s #Stoptober! Now’s the time to give up smoking – 5 October 2016

05 October 2016

If you need help to stop smoking ‘Live Well Luton’ offers support to people living, working or studying in Luton.

They can help you ‘kick the habit’ for good. In fact, you are four times more likely to quit with their help, compared to going ‘cold turkey’ or going it alone!

So how can you stop smoking? Nicotine in cigarettes is very addictive which can make it hard to stop.

For your best chance of stopping, take these three steps:

  • Get help – don’t try to go it alone. Live Well Luton has trained advisors who can help you every step of the way.
  • Plan your quit. Decide on a quit date and stick to it.
  • Not a puff. Cutting down may feel like a good idea but can make stopping altogether harder.

Live Well Luton hold both one-to-one and group stop smoking sessions throughout the week across Luton with times to suit most people. Their trained advisors will support you through the hardest part of quitting with tips, advice and nicotine products or other medication on prescription.

Visit their website today or call the team on 01582 757 635.
