Colin's Story

I couldn’t have done it without the help of Stop Smoking Wales. I’ve now been smoke-free for about 6 weeks, and haven’t looked back!

45 year old Colin started smoking at the age of 14 and smoked 40 cigarettes a day. Colin has attempted to quit many times in the past but this is the first time that he’s quit with confidence.

“I couldn’t have done it without the help of Stop Smoking Wales. I’ve now been smoke-free for about 6 weeks, and haven’t looked back!”

Colin initially visited his GP for stop smoking advice. Along with prescribed nicotine replacement medication, he was also referred to the Stop Smoking Wales service for some support.

“Since giving up the best thing about stopping smoking is that my clothes don’t smell like an ashtray. My health is also so much better, I feel great! I could not have done this without the encouragement I got. My top tip is to believe in yourself, it definitely works!”

Colin plans to use the money he used to spend on cigarettes on Christmas Presents for his grandchildren.
