Stop smoking


At Live Life Better Derbyshire we can provide support, help and advice for you to successfully stop smoking for good. Our fully trained Stop Smoking Advisers can support you through your quit attempt with tips, advice and stop smoking products or medication on prescription.

"You are four times more likely to quit with our help, compared to going it alone.”

The nicotine found in cigarettes, and other tobacco products, is very addictive which can make it hard to stop. For your best chance of stopping follow these simple steps:

  • Plan your quit date and stick to it.
  • Ask your family and friends to support your quit attempt.

  • Drop-in sessions.
  • One-to-one support at a GP surgery or with a Community Stop Smoking Provider, we’ll let you know where the nearest person is to support you.
  • Useful tools will soon be available to download.
