This new free text service allows you to quit anytime... anywhere. If you prefer texting to face-to-face conversations, then this option is for you. The messaging service will provide you with all the advice, tips and tricks you need. We will even text you voucher codes to collect any prescriptions you need to help you quit.
It’s simple to get started. You’ll answer a series of questions to assess your eligibility as well as your smoking habits. It shouldn’t take more than a few minutes.
You’ll then select your two preferred Nicotine Replacement Therapies (Champix is not available through the Remote Quit Programme).
Next, you’ll select your quit date. This is the first day after your last cigarette. In order to get your nicotine replacement therapies to you in time, it needs to be a few days after you sign up. We want to make sure that you are well prepared for your journey.
We’ll double check all your information and give you a chance to amend any mistakes and then that’s it, you’re good to go!
The day before your quit date, we will send you a reminder and from then on, we’ll text you from time to time to check in and to help keep you on track.
