Smokefree Norfolk aims to help those who are motivated to stop smoking by offering support and access to treatment (nicotine replacement therapy, Champix or Zyban) to enable them to quit. We are an E-Cigarette friendly service and can offer support to help you quit smoking if you choose to supply and use this method to quit. Public Health England state that E-cigarettes are 95% less harmful than smoking. Research has shown that an individual is four times more likely to quit successfully if they receive support and use appropriate treatment.

Individuals will access their treatment through Pharmacists or GPs on prescription, with the support from the Specialist Stop Smoking Advisors. A Stop Smoking Service is also offered by healthcare staff in GP Surgeries and Pharmacies.
