Leeds Stop Smoking Service
Leeds NHS Stop Smoking Service is a free service open to anyone who would like to stop smoking. Research shows that you are far more likely to be successful in stopping smoking if you combine both treatment e.g. nicotine patches and specialist help from us than if you try willpower alone!
Specialist stop smoking advisors offer both daytime and evening "quit" sessions in venues in your local area, just click here to find details of your nearest quit session.
All help is free of charge. Ring now on 0800 169 4219 for free advice, support and details of clinics in your area and increase your chances of stopping for good.
Or check out our 'Leeds Stop Smoking Service' downloadable leaflet (on the right side of this screen) for a very quick and simple explanation of what the Leeds smoking service provides and why quitting is so important!
When you call us, one of our dedicated team will find a session that suits you. When you go along to the session, you will discuss the treatment you want to use to quit. One of our advisors will give you advice and support while you're stopping smoking.
We also cover relapse prevention in the hope that a quit attempt will carry on being successful after face-to-face support is finished.
