To give yourself a head start and a better chance of quitting, take a look at our top tips!

1. Remove Temptation

Throw away your cigarettes, tobacco, ash trays and any other paraphernalia that you associate with smoking.

2. Get Support!

You are up to four times more likely to stop smoking if you have support and advice from a professional, so why not pop in to your local participating LloydsPharmacy for advice.

3. Consider Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) Products

You are twice as likely to quit smoking using stop smoking medication than going it alone. There are many different types of medicines that can help you with stopping smoking. If you are unsure of which one will be the best for you ask one of our healthcare team at your local LloydsPharmacy

4. Remember all of the reasons you are stopping smoking!

Whether it be that you or your partner are expecting a child, you want to save money or for health reasons, write down your top reasons and put them in a place where you will see them every day. If you are struggling, take a look at your reason to keep you motivated.

5. Keep your mind active

It is important to try and stay focused and not think about those devilish cravings! If you find a certain time of day hard, try doing something different. Keep your hands and mouth busy! Play with a paperclip and chew sugar-free gum or a toothpick
