What support is available to me?
The best thing you can do for your health is to stop and the best way of doing so is with free support and medication or a vape, and that is available from your local stop smoking service.

As vaping is at least 95% less harmful than smoking, people who cannot stop using support and medication alone are encouraged to try vaping as a way of stopping smoking entirely.
NICE guidance NG209 recommends the use of vaping as a complete replacement for smoking, and whilst it recognises that vaping may not be entirely risk free, it is certainly far less harmful than continuing to smoke. As there is no safe level of tobacco smoking, the guidance recommends that people who vape stop smoking entirely to minimise their risk and that people vape only for as long as required to prevent them from returning to smoking.
