Get help to stop smoking
The health center offers different types of smoking cessation courses. On a smoking cessation course, you get support to get out of your addiction and stick to your decision to be smoke-free and nicotine-free. The smoking cessation course is for you, whether you are a smoker, use e-cigarettes, snuff or nicotine items.
A smoking cessation course starts with a short clarifying conversation over the phone, where we agree on your further smoking cessation course.
The offer is free for everyone who lives or works in Sonderborg Municipality.

In a smoking cessation course, you participate in a team where you can share your experiences with others who wish to quit smoking. You support each other and exchange experiences - and this community and commitment is an important part of the success of most smokers with the course.
A smoking cessation course extends over 7 meetings, where the end goal is a to stop smoking. It's not just about stepping down. You must be aware of this from the start.
