HOW TO QUIT WITH THE STOP SMOKING DOCTOR?
Each smoker is different but all smokers have one thing in common, their addiction to nicotine. Dr Alice Byram looks at each individual smoker and works out the best medication with the correct dosage to CO levels and nicotine consumption. Nicotine withdrawal syndromes are therefore under control.
Your road to a smoke-free lifestyle is paved with plenty of support so you are not alone. This includes intense virtual follow-ups, face-to-face visits, emails and text messages. The face-to-face follow-up visits focus on cognitive behaviour therapy which alters negative habits and make you a true long-term ex-smoker. Stay motivated with information, tips and facts all posted on the Stop Smoking Doctor website news section, Facebook and Twitter.

STOP SMOKING DOCTOR TESTIMONIALS
Melanie Coe from Olvera Properties - "I started smoking when I was 16 as part of a party lifestyle. Over the years I tried to quit using different methods especially in the USA. Nothing worked for longer than a few months, if that. Dr Byram really took her time to understand what made me go back in the past and what was making me smoke now. Her approach is eminently practical and she really is there every step of the way. This time I quit for good." Non-smoker for 3 years.
W.O'R Hedge fund investor - "Initially I was very sceptical about going to a doctor to help me quit smoking. I always said that when the time was right I would do it on my own. The truth is that there was never a time in my hectic life when I could allow myself the luxury of being even more stressed nor risk losing clients by being bad-tempered due to nicotine withdrawal. Dr Byram explained that the medication meant I wouldn't physically want the cigarettes. Changing my habits was the bit I had to work on and Dr Byram really understood about how stressful my job is. She was very flexible and even when I couldn't make it into the clinic we had email and phone contact. It has been a lot easier than I thought. I would never have got round to it on my own." Non-smoker for 12 months
C . G. Writer and Musician - "At the begining I thought that I didn't smoke that much, only when I went out in the evenings. But in the end I was smoking more than 10 a day. I was very worried about social situations as before the new law everyone smoked in bars. Dr Byram found the right dosage for me and I didn't even notice other people smoking. She helped me work out why I smoked and I was well prepared for every situation that came up. Now I haven't smoked for over 2 years." Non-smoker for 2 years
K.S. Mother of 2 children under 6 - "Although I stopped smoking when I was pregnant I went back when my first baby was less than one year old. I knew that I shouldn't smoke but I was always too tired to find the energy to quit. Dr Byram really helped me see that smoking was part of the reason I was so tired and showed my carbon monoxide levels on her machine. You can tell that she too is a mother as she helped me find ways of coping and made me realise that my fag breaks were my way of taking some time out. Now I still have the time out but feel better. And I even lost weight!" Non-smoker for 18 months
