Everyone knows the old saying “It’s easy to stop smoking – I’ve done it lots of times!”

If you've been getting help from Quit4Life and have succeeded in stopping smoking, you may be wondering if you will struggle to stay quit once you no longer have regular contact with your adviser, either face-to-face or over the phone.

To help you stay quit we invite you to join Quit4Life's new, free online community.  This is a support and discussion forum for anyone who wants to be smokefree.

It's a place where you can safely and anonymously share your experiences with others, ask questions, find out more and, most importantly of all, get support. Our advisers will be on hand to answer your questions too.

For more details and to join, just click online stay quit help.

Our forum is completely free and open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! 

Quit4Life gives you a much better chance of stopping smoking. But don’t take our word for it! Here you can hear from some of the thousands of people who are happy to have successfully quit with help from Quit4Life.

You can also read other news stories, and success stories, on our Quit4Life blog.
