Smokefreelife Berkshire is the stop smoking service in the area and offers free and friendly support for people wanting to quit smoking.
You’re up to four times more likely to quit smoking if you use this service than if you try to quit using willpower alone. The adviser will be able to tell you about nicotine replacement products and other stop smoking medicines which are available free of charge. You will be given accurate information and advice on how to quit, and professional support during the first few weeks after you have stopped smoking. We use a carbon monoxide monitor which helps you to see the benefits of giving up smoking.
The stop smoking clinic at Budwood Surgery runs every Tuesday 4-6pm. The advisor is Saskia Bennette who has many years’ experience supporting smokers to quit. Last year Smokefreelife Berkshire achieved an overall quit rate of 70% and 9 out of 10 smokers who have used a local stop smoking service say they would recommend it.
“Very helpful, always there for support”, “Very helpful; I wouldn’t have quit without it”, “The service has helped my health in many ways and I am a non-smoker after 40 years” are some of the comments that we have received from our clients recently.
To book an appointment please ask at reception or call 0800 622 6360. Appointments are also available 7 days a week including weekends and evenings at other venues across West Berkshire
