I started smoking when I was 13 years old; I never thought I would be able to stop. The main reason I stopped was to improve my health.
I couldn’t have done it without the help of the Stop Smoking Service. The Patches helped stop all my cravings, and by keeping myself busy, and doing things differently, I haven’t thought about having a cigarette at all.
I also found the weekly telephone calls from my Advisor really helpful, alongside the motivational text messages that I received.
My health has really improved. I no longer wake up in the night coughing, and I can play with the Grand Kids without getting out of breath.
Now I have extra money to spend, and can afford to eat more healthily, and treat myself if I see something nice in the Shops.
