Smoke free homes

If you smoke at home, the smoke you breathe out can also harm the people who live with you. When they breathe in your cigarette smoke, they are more at risk of getting the illnesses caused by smoking and are four times more likely to develop lung cancer. 

Babies and children who breathe in your smoke are more likely to get chest infections, meningitis and a cough that won’t easily go away. If they have asthma, their symptoms will get worse. 

Babies who breathe in your smoke are more at risk of cot death and an ear infection called glue ear. If you or someone in your household smokes, you should smoke outside

NRT is a licensed medicine and there are very few risks from using it. It can help you to manage your cravings and is far less harmful than smoking. For example, a slow release patch can help you manage the background craving and a fast-acting patch can help when you feel that sudden urge to smoke.

Other NRT products can help you become smoke free too – such as gum, lozenges, nasal sprays, inhalators and e-cigarettes. We will advise you on the most suitable product(s) for you.

Smoking costs money as well as affecting your health. Cigarettes are expensive, and quitting can save you money now, as well as save on future health costs. 

Based on someone who smokes 20 cigarettes a day, at a cost of £12 per pack you could save a massive £4,380 a year. That’s £336 a week, £84 a month and £12 per day.
