This guidance supports clinicians in their conversations with patients on the different available options for stopping smoking and their effectiveness. Different approaches suit different people so if the first thing a smoker tries does not help, they should try another way.

Stopping smoking has a range of benefits for:

  • health (reducing risks of cancer and cardiovascular disease)
  • saving money (on average people save £250 per month from stopping smoking)
  • families and children (passive smoking)
