"Stopping smoking"

About: Locala Community Partnerships CIC / Stop smoking service

(as the patient),

I accessed my local stop smoking service who were able to advise me on the best way to stop smoking, I did not have any expectations at first, as I had tried to stop smoking before and been unsuccessful. I was advised to start taking Champix as a method to help me stop smoking.

after 12 days taking Champix I quit smoking, it has been 2 weeks now and I have not had a cigarette since. I feel amazing, my life has totally changed, I am confident, happy and feel in control of my smoking habit, I am very proud to say I am a now a no smoker.

I believe I would not have done this without the Stop smoking service and the use of Champix.
