"I needed to stop smoking"

About: Promoting Well Being / Stop Smoking Service

(as the patient),

I needed to stop smoking and have tired so many different things by myself and had no joy. Contacted stop smoking and was put in contact with Emma (stop smoking specialist) who was just fantastic from start. So friendly and very very helpful. Easy to contact and made the journey a lot easier, without her being so understanding, friendly approach and support I wouldn't have stopped smoking.

Emma has told me that if I ever need her just to contact her which is so good to know.

I was a heavy smoker and with my health I needed to stop.

I feel so different now and feel so much better, and the bonus is the amount of money I'm saving. So if anyone just needs that extra hand to help them I can recommend Emma so much.
