The Coast Quit smoking cessation programme is provided by trained smoking cessation staff at your medical centre or local pharmacy.
It is based on two active ingredients: Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) patches, gum or lozenges, to reduce the withdrawl effects from stopping smoking; and one-to-one support sessions for several weeks, while you make the lifestyle change from smoker to ex-smoker.
Most people find that it takes them a while to get over their desire for a cigarette. This is normal, and will soon fade away, especially when you start to feel the benefits from not sucking poisionous smoke into your lungs every day!
Your Coast Quit support person is there to offer advice and encouragement, to help you keep on track during the first few weeks.
