Paul had smoked since he 15 years old and has since tried to stop smoking twice before cold turkey but unfortunately, the cravings were too strong and he gave in which is a very common finding for people who quit without added support.
Paul managed to quit with patches, which is a very popular choice amongst smokers as they are easy to use and have little side effects. He went to see his smoke free advisor for one to one sessions and gained valuable support along the way- meaning when the cravings hit, he was helped to put steps in place to help rather than turn back.
"If anyone is thinking about quitting smoking, I would say absolutely, 100% do it. I have found confidence and a smoke-free life with the help of Yorkshire Smoke-free and I have never looked back since. My advice would be for anyone who is thinking or even considering ditching the cigs to do it. I never thought after smoking for so long that I would be able to do it at first, but with the excellent support from the Yorkshire Smokefree team, I know the willpower was in me all along, I just needed some support."
My advice would be for anyone who is thinking or even considering ditching the cigs to absolutely do it. I never thought that I would be able to do it and at first but with the help of Yorkshire Smokefree, I know the willpower was in me all along.
Paul is proud to say he is now completely smoke-free and hasn't given in to any of his cravings. After two failed attempts, he definitely recommends the Yorkshire Smokefree service to anyone who is thinking about quitting the first time or for anyone similar to Paul who had tried but was disheartened by failure.
