Quit Smoking with the support of Our LiveWell

Do you want to stop smoking? We can help.

LEARN TO STOP SMOKING WITH LIKEMINDED PEOPLE

When you decide to stop smoking, it can seem like a big step. Make that step easier with the help of likeminded people who are in the same situation as you. Join Our LiveWell Facebook group to be a part of a community on a journey to LiveWell together. This group is only open to Dorset residents, so you’ll be chatting to local people in a similar situation to yourself.

local advice from local people

Need to know the best places to get advice on quitting smoking? Keen to find out more about the LiveWell Dorset stop smoking services from an unbiased person? LiveWell Advisors in the call centre is the best place to get this advice! Our group welcomes LiveWell Dorset clients as well as anyone else in Dorset who wants to talk to local people about their journey towards being smoke free. If you’re not sure whether you want to sign up to LiveWell Dorset’s services yet, then the Facebook group is a good place to start and find out more information from local people giving up smoking.

Share your progress

Every milestone, from one day to one year, is a big deal on your journey to becoming smoke free. For some people, it can be motivating to share with other people about their progress, but if you haven’t got anyone to share your story with you might start to lose motivation. Our LiveWell Facebook group is a community of people sharing their progress, motivating and  and encourage each other and are eager to hear your story. Giving up smoking is something to be proud of, and the members of the Our LiveWell Facebook group will celebrate your success.

Our LiveWell Facebook group is full of people who are trying to make positive steps just like you. Make new friends and take steps to become more healthy, together. Find new activities to distract yourself from the cravings.

You've got to believe that you can do it wholeheartedly. It's important that you do it for yourself, and that you have the self-belief that you can just do it. Stick at it, you'll never look back!

How does this work?

The tailored approach LiveWell Dorset uses to come up with solutions to the things that are stopping us achieving our goals, is based upon work done by University College London developing the COM-B model of behaviour change. In this model, all behaviour is influenced by understanding a person’s capability to change, their opportunity to change and their motivation to change. By understanding which of these is the biggest barrier to change, we can tailor support accordingly. This model of behaviour change is at the centre of the support we offer, online and in person.

Do you provide your consent to share your information with the LiveWell Dorset team – part of Public Health Dorset ?

When you register with LiveWell Dorset, we ask you some questions about you and your health (how much you smoke, how active you are, how much you drink and how much you weigh). We store that information and use it to shape our service offer to you – such as the advice we give or the extra services we connect you to. The only people who will see this information will be those involved in the delivery of the service and management of the data. If you would like to use extra services (such as slimming clubs and pharmacies) we have to share this information with them. For us to be able to put you in touch with these services, we must have your consent to share that information with the service (we’ll ask for that later, when if you sign up for extra services).

Before we can sign you up any further, we need to know:

  • You're happy for your personal information to be shared with LiveWell Dorset.
  • You understand what information may be shared and why, and that at times, our contact to you may be supported by technology partners, who have the same data protection standards and safeguards as we do
  • You acknowledge that you can withdraw your consent at any time by informing LiveWell Dorset.
  • You understand that if you do not give consent or withdraw consent then it could be difficult for us to connect you some of the services we offer.

If you require any more information to help you make your choice then please contact the LiveWell Dorset team on 0800 840 1628. All telephone conversations at LiveWell Dorset are recorded for quality and training purposes, and stored whilst you are registered as active within the service.
