Boots Stop Smoking Online Clinic
Support to help you stop smoking
What is Boots Stop Smoking Clinic for?
By deciding to give up smoking, you’ve already taken the first step on a journey to living a healthier and longer life, particularly if you have heart or lung disease.
Our online clinic can give you access to a prescription-only medicine called Champix to help you stop smoking, without you visiting your GP.
If you already have a prescription for medication from your GP this can be dispensed at your local Boots pharmacy.
Who can use this clinic?
You must be at least 18 years old to use this clinic.

What results can I expect?
You’re more likely to stop smoking if you’re sufficiently motivated to do so. According to research, prescription medicine can help double or even triple your chances of stopping smoking.
The usual course of treatment lasts 12 weeks but some people may need longer to help them stop smoking for good.
Boots offers a number of options to help you stop smoking.
- One-to-one advice and information - The NHS Stop Smoking service is available at a number of locations including selected Boots stores and may suit you if you prefer a structured approach to help you stop smoking**
- Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) - Boots sells several different types of NRT products such as gum, patches, nasal sprays and inhalators online and in store. A member of your local Boots pharmacy team can help you decide which stop smoking option may be suitable for you
- Prescription medication - There are two prescription medicines available to help stop smoking: Champix and Zyban. This clinic can give you access to Champix without a prescription from your doctor. For Zyban, you’d need a prescription from your GP before you can get the medicine from Boots
For full information about Champix, including its possible side effects, please read the Patient Information Leaflet.
