Thinking of quitting? The average age of quitting is about 42 years, however studies have shown that the average 40-year-old has already tried to quit between 10-20 times. Failure to quit can be caused by many reasons such as peer pressure to smoke, lack of information/support on how best to success, and lack of desire to change.
It’s well known that people who smoke have a greater risk of developing many serious health conditions such as high blood pressure, stroke, and throat or lung cancer. It’s good to know that no matter what age you quit, there are significant health benefits to be gained – for example, within just one year of quitting, your risk of having a heart attack is halved.

There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach – we take into account your individual motivations and circumstances before working out a plan (and possibly recommending products) to greatly improve your chances of successfully quitting.
