Success stories

"Alisha has used the money she saved to go on holiday"

Mum and daughter Beverley and Alisha couldn’t believe how much money they saved by quitting. They both used their local NHS stop smoking service to go Smokefree.

Beverley, 46, had been smoking for 30 years before she quit. She had gone through a period of ill-health shortly before she took the decision to quit, and had been using nicotine replacement therapy. Alisha decided to quit as well, helping to support her mum — and they did it together by seeing an expert adviser from their local stop smoking service. The adviser helped them figure out the best treatment to suit each of them individually.

Now, Beverley says, they are reaping the rewards: "Alisha has used the money she saved to go on holiday ... My partner and I completely redecorated our house so it doesn't smell of smoke any more. Receiving so much support from my local stop smoking service has inspired me to encourage my friends to stop smoking too!"
