How it works

01

First appointment

We will contact you to arrange a suitable time for your first appointment. During this 30 min appointment you will discuss any concerns you have about quitting, the benefits you are hoping to get from stopping smoking and how the appointments and NRT work.

02

sending & receiving nrt

Nicotine replacement therapy comes in a variety of forms. The Stop Smoking practitioner will discuss with you the type of NRT which might work best for you. It will be posted to your address.

03

SETTING A QUIT DATE & QUITTING

Your Practitioner will help you plan and prepare for your quit date, taking into account any concerns or barriers you may feel towards quitting.

04

WEEKLY APPOINTMENTS

The course runs for a total of 12 weeks, and you will be able to receive weekly or bi-weekly appointments depending on the level of support you need. These appointments are roughly about 15 minutes in length where the practitioner will review your quit product (e.g. NRT) and discuss any concerns or struggles you might have had that week.

05

FOUR WEEK QUITTER STATUS

This is a great goal to aim for during Stoptober. Your practitioner will help adjust any NRT requirements you may have at this point.

TWELVE WEEK QUITTER STATUS

Congratulations you have reached the end of the course and are a fully fledged non-smoker.
