Help2Quit stop smoking service

​About the Help2Quit service

The Jersey Help2Quit Stop Smoking Service helps hundreds of Islanders to quit every year​. You're four times more likely to stop smoking for good using the Help2Quit service, than if you go it alone.  

 The Stop Smoking Service:

  • offers free support to anyone living in Jersey who wants to stop smoking
  • is a confidential and friendly service 
  • supplies free nicotine replacement therapy (NRT)
  • is provided by 21 local pharmacies across the island but also offers a specialist service for people needing more intensive support
Help2Quit is delivered on behalf of the States of Jersey Health and Social Services Department​.

Feedback from those who have used Help2Quit

We've received very positive feedback from Islanders who've used the service: 

“I never thought I would be able to quit and was surprised at how the service made it easier than I imagined”

“Really helpful, could not have achieved this result by myself. Feel so much better”​

​Your Help2Quit support programme​

Once you've made contact with the service, your stop smoking programme will consist of:

  • an initial 30 minute appointment
  • eight weekly support sessions lasting 10 minutes
  • up to 12 weeks free supply of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) for clients who attend the support sessions

You'll have to visit your GP if you want to use other stop smoking treatments such as Champix and Zyban, and there's a prescription cost for these treatments. 

​You can still use Help2Quit for support as this can increase your chances of quitting successfully.

If you've used the Help2Quit service before, but you've started smoking again, you can use the service​ again. Call the helpline for more information. 

​What happens at your first appointment

When you attend your chosen pharmacy, you'll meet a trained Stop Smoking Adviser who will:

  • assess your level of addiction by asking some questions about your smoking history
  • test your exposure to Carbon Monoxide using a simple breath test (Carbon Monoxide is one of the harmful chemicals found in cigarette smoke)
  • advise you on the best methods to help you quit
  • offer support in setting a date to quit smoking
  • give advice on different stop smoking medicines
  • supply nicotine replacement therapy free of charge

This service is offered by Stop Smoking Nurse Specialists to:

  • hospital in-patients
  • pregnant women
  • people with long-term medical conditions (chronic disease)
  • people with mental health conditions (currently receiving support from mental health services)
