Stop Smoking

Stopping smoking is one of the best things you can do for your own health and the health of your family. You start to get the benefits of stopping almost straight away. Did you know that just 20 minutes after stopping smoking your blood pressure and pulse go back to normal and after just 24 hours your lungs start to clear?

Quitting smoking is tough, but if you are ready to make a change, there is lots of help available. Visit Smokefree Norfolk to find out more.

Things You Can Do To Help

  • Don’t try to go it alone! You are four times more likely to stop smoking with support. Contact one of the services in the Who Can Help section of the page, to get started today!
  • Calculate how much stopping smoking will save you using the Smoking Cost Calculator and keep a reminder up on your wall or fridge 
  • Keep your hands busy. Having a drink or a pen in the hand you normally use to smoke can stop you from reaching for that cigarette
  • A craving only lasts five minutes, so make a list of five minute strategies to distract you when you want to smoke
  • Buddy up with a friend or family member who also wants to quit and help each other
  • Make a list of reasons you want to stop smoking and put it where you normally keep your cigarettes.
