Hertfordshire County Council

Quitting smoking is one of the best things you will ever do for your physical and mental health, and is better for your family and friends.

How we can support you

Our advisors will provide you with tailored support for 12 weeks. During this time you will have regular 1-1 sessions with your advisor who will be able to answer any questions you have, provide advice on how to stay smoke free, give guidance on how best to use your vape and ways in which you can take control of cravings.

  • Weekly support for up to 12 weeks, either face-to-face or over the phone
  • Creating a plan with you to help you quit.
  • Motivation to support you through the challenging times and help you combat cravings.
  • Regular carbon monoxide breath testing to show you how your progress has benefitted your health.

This service is free, but you may have to pay for any prescriptions you might need (Nicotine Replacement Therapy or 'NRT' counts as a prescription product). We can advise you on how to save money with a prescription pre-payment certificate.

If you are currently pregnant, have a diagnosed mental health condition, are an acute trust inpatient or are about to have an elective procedure, please contact the hospital responsible for your care or Hertfordshire Health Improvement Service to find out more about what stop smoking services are available to you


If you can't find a service in your area, or you'd like more information on the services available, contact us.
