NHS Borders Quit Your Way

by Joint Health Improvement Team

Support Network

We know it’s hard to stop smoking for many reasons. It’s not just a matter of deciding to do it – sometimes there are other things that can make it difficult to cut cigarettes out of your life. And sometimes you need more than just willpower to make sure you can stick to a SmokeFree life.

That’s why we have established Stop Smoking services for people who live in the Borders area and want to give up smoking.

Stop Smoking support from Quit Your Way is offered in a variety of local places including:

Support in the Community
Community Pharmacies and Chemists
Our services are free and delivered by trained advisers. Our experience has shown that having a knowledgeable and qualified person to give you support and using a product such as nicotine replacement therapy (e.g. nicotine patches or gum) or Champix means that you are four times more likely to succeed in stopping smoking.

Prescriptions for nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) – e.g. nicotine patches or gum – can be obtained from all of our advisers, and you will normally be provided with enough for one week at a time.

If you would like to know more about what is available in your local area please contact us at Quit Your Way and we can help you decide which support is best for you.
