Kick It will provide you with six, free, weekly sessions of help and support to get you through the hardest part of quitting. The first appointment is usually a little longer at 40 minutes but the remainder are relatively brief at around 20 minutes.

Almost all GPs and pharmacies in our boroughs deliver specialist stop smoking support from advisors whom we have trained to run Kick-It interventions. Additionally our core Kick It team run sessions from alternative venues such as libraries, community centres and even our mobile quit van which you might see out and about in our boroughs.
Also don’t worry if you have a busy schedule, our staff run stop smoking clinics in the mornings, afternoons and evenings. What’s more for some extra flexibility our advisors can offer telephone appointments and are often reachable via text.
You won’t be inhaling the dangerous toxins in cigarettes like tar or carbon monoxide. Health benefits start within 24 hours but in 10 years your risk of heart attack will be that of someone who has never smoked.
You’ll end up saving an absolute fortune – Around £3000 if you smoke 20 a day. Fancy a Caribbean cruise or a new car?
You protect them from second hand smoke at home and your children have less risk of developing infections and asthma.
