We all know about the negative effects that smoking has on our health, but that doesn’t mean it’s any easier to quit. However, support from Stop Smoking Services can make you up to four times more likely to succeed (NHS choices).
Health Exchange can offer you a supportive programme that will help you to quit for good. Our programme helps you break the habit by prescribing Nicotine Replacement Therapy and personalised support from one of our Stop Smoking Advisors.
Our programme involves one on one support from a qualified Stop Smoking Advisor at a time and location that suits you. We can help you to access Nicotine Replacement Therapy from your local pharmacy and we will regularly review your carbon monoxide level and nicotine dependence – helping you to track your progress.
We have plenty of drop-in clinics across Sandwell, the locations of which can be found at www.qssupport.co.uk/find-your-area or you can book an appointment on 0121 663 0007.

‘’Before joining the Stop Smoking programme offered by Health Exchange, I had many attempts to try to quit but each time I failed, perhaps I was not in the right frame of mind. I was relieved to find that the service was being provided very close to where I’m living. The service was a blessing for me because I did not have to go to my GP to make an appointment for my NRT.
I’m so happy with my achievement as my family, my grandchildren tell me every weekend of how proud they are of me. Of course I have started saving money since I quit and it surprises me how much of a fortune it was that I’ve been spending every day of life in the past.
Thanks to Health Exchange for making a huge difference in my life’’
Ann, Age 62, Oldbury
‘’Health Exchange’s Stop Smoking service has helped me not only physically, but mentally. I am grateful for all the patience my advisor had for me; spending extra time with me as I was going through a stressful time. Not only the medicine, but being able to talk to the advisor has helped me to achieve my goal. I am smoke free now and have started feeling the difference. I feel more positive each day’’.
John, Age 68, Tividale
Remember, it may be hard to quit – but it is possible!
