Quit Your Way …with our support

You’re up to three times more likely to stop smoking successfully if you use an NHS smoking cessation service than if you go it alone.

There’s a wide range of free NHS services available, including the national telephone and online advice and support service, local groups, pharmacy support, help for pregnant women and one-to-one support.  

Now, to make it as easy as possible for people to use our smoking cessation services, they’ve been given a new name.

From March 2018, NHSGGC Smokefree Services will be rebranded the ‘Quit Your Way’ service. 

The national Smokeline service will be known as Quit Your Way Scotland. The telephone number for the free helpline is unchanged: 0800 84 84 84

Dr Linda de Caestecker, director of public health, explained: “Stopping smoking is one of the most important steps a person can take to improve their health but it’s not something you have to do on your own. 

“There are a range of free NHS stop smoking services available across Greater Glasgow and Clyde to help you succeed.

“We know that people take up smoking for different reasons and will quit smoking their way.. so our new name reflects our focus on you.

“It's about your choice and providing support on your terms.

“With stop smoking services now accepted as much being more effective as do-it-yourself, I’d urge anyone who has been thinking about giving up to take that first step and quit their way.”

If you’re thinking of stopping smoking, take the first step now.  Call 0800 84 84 84 to find out what support you can choose from or go to
