A better Medway

I really enjoy helping people and it’s great to see people doing well with their quit smoking plan – you can see in their faces that it’s given them a whole new lease of life!

Stop smoking and start living

There is plenty of free support and advice in Medway to help you stop smoking for good

Smoking is the leading preventable cause of premature death, causing almost 75,000 deaths a year.

But it is never too late to quit. Stopping smoking brings immediate benefits to health, including for people with an existing smoking-related disease.

The average smoker can save £5.21 a day, £36.47 a week, £156.30 a month and £1,875.60 a year by stopping smoking.
