Congratulations! You've taken the first step towards a smoke-free life. Millions of people have used Smokefree to help them stop smoking.
Vapour Central have been commissioned by Public Health Southend Stop Smoking Service to provide professional advice & support for smokers who live or work in Southend.
The programme consists of a 10-week support programme (duration may change via Pilot schemes).
Vapour Central staff have received Level 2 Stop Smoking Advisor Training and are competent in knowledge & key skills with the National Centre of Smoking Cessation Training (NCSCT) This enables the team to advise and support a client through a quit programme.
Vapour Central will help you on your journey from the very beginning. From choosing the right device, to the ongoing advice on flavours, liquids, and other Nicotine Replacement Therapy products.
Both our Leigh on Sea and Westcliff store currently offer this service!
Why it helps
Your adviser will be able to tell you about the various E-Cigarettes available, as well as other Nicotine replacement therapies. They can also recommend which product or combination of products could work for you. Need a little motivation? Your adviser can measure the levels of carbon monoxide in your body (the CO level) using a carbon monoxide monitor. The monitor shows how your CO level drops to the same level as a non-smoker's, just 24 hours after your last cigarette.
All of our staff are trained in smoking cessation and have a certificate issued by the NCSCT.
Our in-store stop smoking adviors carry a level 2 certificate issued by Southend Council for Smoking Cessation.
Many of our staff also have a background in medicine.
The Smoke Free service is run by Public Health England and the NHS and is controlled by local councils.
We are part of the same Smoke Free scheme offered by the NHS, however, we are not affiliated with the NHS.
Our contract to provide the service is with Southend on Sea Council.
