The NHS offers top tips for people trying to quit which can be used alongside visiting a support service.

These include thinking positive, making a plan to quit with a list of benefits that it will bring, consider a change in diet or drinks, saying aloud "I won't even have a single drag" until the cravings pass, exercise more to help cut down cravings, identify strategies to use during the five minutes that cravings usually last, make non-smoking friends, and try to keep your hands and mouth busy
