Stop Smoking Support In Dorset 

If you live in Dorset and want to quit smoking, but are not sure where to start, register or talk to us today. Our team of advisors and coaches are ready to discuss your stop-smoke options. We have helped people to stop smoking across the whole of Dorset. We would love to help you too.

Your options

First up, we'll guide you to face-to-face support from your local pharmacy. Secondly, we'll discuss if nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) gum and patches could work for you and can send you a pack in the post free of charge. Thirdly, we'll talk through the benefits of vaping and find out if you're eligible for a free e-Cigarette starter pack.

Throughout, our behaviour change coaching is here to help you by identifying the barriers that are in your way, and how you can overcome them. Our coaching sessions take place over the phone, at a time and place convenient for you.

Why quit smoking?

Quitting smoking is the most beneficial thing you can do for your health. You'll be less likely to suffer from a seemingly never-ending list of health problems. No matter your age, it's never too late to quit. The benefits are almost immediate. Within 48 hours our lungs begin to clear out mucus and other smoking debris; carbon monoxide is eliminated from the body and our oxygen supply rapidly improves.

The cost of smoking has increased by nearly 100% over the past 10 years. The average smoker can save £1,800 a year by stopping smoking. A 20-a-day smoker can save up to £4,000 a year!

How you can benefit from quitting smoking:

Helps you feel better
Gives you more energy
Helps you handle stress better
Helps you think clearer
Makes you healthier
Helps you live longer
Reduces the risk of artery disease
Lowers your blood pressure
Prevents type 2 diabetes and some cancers

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.
