You are four times more likely to quit smoking if you do it with support. There are lots of free options available and you can choose the method that works best for you.
- The NHS Smokefree site offers a quit kit, app, text messages and emails.
- Your local pharmacy can provide free stop smoking advice and can assist you in choosing the best products to help you cut down and quit if you need these. Find your nearest pharmacy.
- Portsmouth’s Wellbeing Service has trained stop smokers advisors who can offer free, friendly, non-judgemental support and can help develop an individually tailored quit plan with you. They work from venues across the City and provide one-to-one appointments, group sessions and drop-in clinics.
They offer free carbon monoxide testing and can organise stop smoking medication. Specialist support is available for pregnant women and those with mental health conditions. In their first year, the Wellbeing Service helped 856 people in Portsmouth to quit smoking.

You could agree to quit with a family member, friend or colleague so that you can support each other to become smokefree.
