Stopping smoking and protection and prevention from tobacco use
From the 1st April, Your Health, Your Way is the new service commissioned by Nottinghamshire County Council to support Nottinghamshire residents (children, young people, adults and families) to get active, lose weight, reduce alcohol intake and quit smoking. The service will also provide support for falls prevention and family weight management.

Support to quit smoking
We all know smoking is bad for you, your family and your friends. There are lots of reasons to stop smoking as well as plenty of support to quit. It's never too late to give up smoking, and research suggests that smokers who stop with support are four times more likely to succeed, and so you do not have to do it on your own.
There is a range of local support that can help you quit smoking by:
- assessing what's going to help you
- explaining what's happening to your body as you give up
- offering free stop smoking aids like nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), which can be given to you on the spot, as well as the stop smoking medication, Champix
You can get this support from the specialist stop smoking service Your Health, Your Way (details above).
Online support and further information is also available through:
