QUIT is a UK charity working to save lives by preventing the development of cancer, heart disease and other illnesses from use of tobacco. They help smokers stop and work to ensure young people never start. Its services include helplines and community programmes in 8 different languages, available to anyone and everyone. Through their support, you can create your own plan to QUIT and will receive support throughout.
Established by the Royal College of Physicians in January 1971, ASH is a public charity dedicated to eliminating the harm caused by tobacco. ASH follows a dual approach: (1) information and networking to developing awareness about the tobacco epidemic and (2) advocacy and campaigning to press for policy measures and reduce the burden of addiction. If you are looking to quit smoking, ASH has a variety of resources and support outlets to check out.
The British Lung Foundation recognizes that quitting smoking is a challenging feat, one that often seems unattainable. Whilst offering support for all lung diseases, not just those that are tobacco-based, the organisation has support systems for addicts and anyone looking to make a change for their health.
The UK National Health Services (NHS) offers support for those trying to quit smoking. Their site offers detailed information regarding the impacts of smoking on one’s body, as well as ways to quit. The Smoke Free site includes support options such as their app, where to find a local support service, and how to create a personal plan.
Kick-It is dedicated to providing a free, evidence-based service for smokers 13 years and over who would like support in quitting smoking. The service is, however, limited to residents of two London boroughs: London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham and Royal Borough of Kingston-upon-Thames. This service will give you six weeks of 1-1 support from a specialist stop smoking advisor, all of which is tailored to support each individual.
