Commit to Quit in the New Year
Smokefreelife Berkshire is the stop smoking service in Reading and offers free and friendly support for people wanting to quit smoking.
You’re up to four times more likely to quit smoking if you use this service than if you try to quit using willpower alone. The adviser will be able to tell you about nicotine replacement products and other stop smoking medicines which are available free of charge. You will be given accurate information and advice on how to quit, and professional support during the first few weeks after you have stopped smoking. We use a carbon monoxide monitor which helps you to see the benefits of giving up smoking.
The stop smoking clinic at Grovelands Medical Centre runs every Monday 12 – 6.30pm. The advisor is Oliver Carthew who has many years’ experience supporting smokers to quit. Last year Smokefreelife Berkshire achieved an overall quit rate of 70% and 9 out of 10 smokers who have used a local stop smoking service say they would recommend it.
To book an appointment ask at reception or call 0800 622 6360. Appointments are also available 7 days a week including weekends and evenings at other venues across Reading.
