Want to quit?

Told to quit?

6 in 10 smokers reading this want to quit.

It's likely that your Doctor, spouse, friends and even your cigarette package have told you to quit. When do you want to quit? The decision is yours - you can do it. And we can help you.

You'll no doubt know the facts and stats about the harm smoking does to your health; it is the biggest cause of preventable deaths in England and it doubles your risk of having a heart attack or stroke. The cost of smoking has increased by nearly 100% over the past 10 years. An 11-a-day smoker can save up to £1,700 a year by stopping smoking. A 20-a-day smoker can save up to £3,000 a year! … £30,000 in a decade!  

Three tools to empower you to quit:

1. Join Our LiveWell:

It’s important to have a team of supporters around you to encourage you. They'll pick-you-up when the going gets tough and they'll celebrate with you when you reach your goals. “I quit in February, for myself, my family and my grandson” said one group member recently. Join Our LiveWell Facebook Group.

2. Sign up to coaching:

Our health coaches can talk you through your steps to success over a 12-month period. They'll help you to activate your stop smoke oomph. Register now.

3. Create your personal quit plan

Planning is an important part of quitting. Talk to us about creating your plan. This short quiz will get you started:

When do you want to quit?

The ball's in your court. Stoptober is an ideal time to quit as you'll join thousands of smokers, battling to break the chain together. It is the biggest mass quit attempt in the country. Research shows that smokers who make it to 28 days free are 5 times more likely to quit for good.

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.
