Help to quit near you

Quitting smoking can be tough. Smokers who quit with support from other people, whether they are trained advisers or family and friends, are more likely to quit successfully.

There is a range of local services available to help even more Greater Manchester residents become exsmokers.

Click on your local area below to find how to access support near you. If you live outside Greater Manchester, you can find support to stop smoking via the NHS Smokefree website.
