Get Free Support with Smokefreelife Somerset

Smokefreelife Somerset is your local stop smoking service and is provided by Somerset County Council.

We are a FREE stop smoking service supporting Somerset residents to become smoke free.

Our 12 week treatment programme focuses on supporting behaviour change. Stop Smoking Practitioners will also advise on the use of licensed stop smoking medications to ease nicotine withdrawal and may supply these products if appropriate. Depending on the product used, this may incur a prescription charge if applicable

Unfortunately we are unable to provide Champix (Varenicline) until further notice as Pfizer, who are the sole supplier of Champix (Varenicline), have temporarily stopped the distribution of all Champix tablets. We understand that supply of varenicline will not recommence in the short term and that it could be many months, or longer, before Pfizer are able to guarantee supply of Champix.

Who can access support with Smokefreelife Somerset?

  • Smokers who live in Somerset.
  • Smokers who are currently smoking tobacco at their first appointment.
  • Current smokers who are willing to work with a Stop Smoking Practitioner towards setting a quit date within 2 weeks of their first appointment and returning for support.
  • Ex-smokers who have quit up to and not exceeding 14 days prior to their first appointment.

Following all support being provided by phone appointment due to the covid-19 outbreak our service is now returning to face to face support. Initial appointments will be provided by phone followed by weekly attendance at one of our face to face support sessions listed below. If you would like access support please either call us on 01823 356222 or complete our booking form to find out more or book an appointment.

 

“One thing that really helped me was a text I had from one of my daughters, it was telling me how proud she was of me so when things got tough, I’d read it and it helped me to carry on quitting. It’s now eighteen months since I quit but I still read that text now and again.”
