Help in Lambeth for No Smoking Day 2024

National No Smoking Day is Wednesday 13 March.

Smoking is still the world’s leading cause of preventable diseases and premature deaths. In the UK alone, thousands of lives are lost each year to smoking-related illnesses.

Stopping smoking is one of the best things for your health. You are more likely to succeed by mixing and matching personal help (like motivational support from a health advisor) with NRT, prescription medication, or e-cigarettes.

There’s free support for all Lambeth smokers and options to fit your lifestyle and help you quit successfully.

Lambeth Stop Smoking Service

Smokers in at-risk groups (listed) can get free one-to-one behavioural support, Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) or vaping kits from the Lambeth Specialist Stop Smoking Service, delivered by Guy’s and St Thomas NHS Foundation Trust.

  • Diagnosed with one or more long-term conditions, including mental illness
  • Pregnant smokers and their partners
  • Parents with children aged five or under
  • Long-term smokers
