Smokefreelife is North Lincolnshire’s FREE ‘stop smoking service’ available to smokers who live or work in North Lincolnshire. It provides advice, support and encouragement to help people quit smoking for good.
Smokefreelife recognises that everyone is different. What is suitable for one person may not be suitable for another. This is why they offer a range of interventions for smokers, so that whatever life’s demands are, every smoker can access professional support from accredited stop smoking advisor’s to help them quit their addiction.
Smokefreelife can make giving up smoking as easy as ..... 1, 2 or 3:
1. Face-to-face support: Weekly meetings with a Stop Smoking Advisor who can offer behavioural support and, where necessary, a free supply of a range of Nicotine Replacement (NRT) products for up to 8 weeks or medication.
2. ‘Quitline’, Text and Email support: A trained advisor will be able to give you the same behavioural support as the face to face service and also give information about NRT products that are available to purchase.
3. Online interactive service: The ‘YooQuit’ programme is a new online support service where you can receive the same professional advice and help at your own pace with the option to speak to a Stop Smoking Advisor if you wish to. ‘YooQuit’ uses online videos and audio information to help you quit in the comfort of your own home.
