GoSmokeFree Smoking Cessation Programme
Want to quit smoking but need help doing it?
Research shows that over 70% of smokers would like to give up smoking, and a further 30% go on to try and stop each year. Here’s the issue though: less than 3% successfully quit if they do it cold turkey. Clinical reviews actually indicate that the most effective smoking cessation intervention is a combination of behaviour change techniques, medication and support.
Tobacco kills up to half of its users, according to the World Health Organisation. Stopping smoking is therefore the single most important decision you can make to improve your health.
