Smoking support for under 18s
Find a Quit Coach
If you're under 18 and want to stop smoking, Quit coaches can help you.
- Text QUIT to 87023
- Call 0300 123 1220 (choose option 1 - the stop smoking service)
Someone will contact you and ask your age and where you live or go to school so they can find your local coach.
What the Quit Coach will do
Your Quit Coach will talk to you about how best to help you, either face to face or over the phone. They'll find out whether you'd rather meet in a group or have one to one support.
They will also tell you about free products to help you quit if you're over 12 years old.
Everything you tell your Quit Coach is kept private. They won't tell your parents or school unless they are worried about your or other people's safety.
You can ask or tell them anything. They are there to help, even if you're only thinking about giving up but aren't quite ready.
