Reach for the phone - our quit coaches will help you stop smoking for good

Date: 13 March 2018

From time to time, we all need some extra motivation to help us achieve our goals, so on this National Stop Smoking Day (March 14), people in Bromley are being offered personal coaching to help them quit!

The Stop Smoking London helpline (0300 123 1044) is a free and convenient service that gives people advice and support from experts. As part of the NHS-backed service, smokers work with an adviser to set a quit date, make a plan, and get regular calls to keep them on track.

The service is a great way to stop without the hassle of visits to a GP surgery or local clinic. Our advisers are friendly and non-judgemental. Their enthusiasm will keep you spurred on to succeed.

People in Bromley, can get ongoing, free support from the helpline service. Advisers work with smokers to set a quit date, make a plan and talk about appropriate treatments and how to get them. They also keep people on track with their quit date by making follow up calls, providing motivation, and talking through techniques to beat cravings.

The London Stop Smoking Helpline has been set up by the Association of Directors of Public Health (ADPH) in London and is backed by the NHS.

There are 1.3 million tobacco smokers in London, but official data suggests that smoking will be virtually wiped out by 2030.  According to figures from the Annual Population Survey, smoking prevalence in London was 15.2% in 2016, and declining at a rate of 3 percentage points every 4 years, which would put prevalence below 5% by 2030.

Smokers can call the local rate helpline seven days a week from Monday to Fridays between 9am and 8pm, and on Saturday and Sunday between 11am and 4pm.
