Support for people who live in Nottingham city

Want to stop smoking but don’t know where to start?

Stub it! is a stop smoking service, that offers a 12-week program with trained stop smoking advisors. The team work with you to develop an individual plan to suit you and your patterns of smoking.

 

Since 2018, we have seen over 2000 patients and helped nearly 40% of them quit smoking. That's higher than the national average!

 

People choose to stop smoking for a number of reasons. Whatever your reason it's worth remembering that smoking remains the single largest preventable cause of early death in the UK. You are making a good choice. Not only will stopping smoking improve your health, but you’ll feel more rested, energetic and have more money too!

 

The Stub it! service is available anyone aged 16 or over who lives in Nottingham city.

 

If you live outside the Nottingham city boundary you can contact your GP practice for advice or visit www.nhs.uk/smokefree to see what services are available in your area.

 

Good luck!
