    I'm thinking of quitting

    Last reviewed July 2016

    Congratulations! Thinking about quitting is the first step toward becoming a non-smoker. It’s good to understand why you smoke and the reasons why you want to quit smoking. Knowing the different ways and supports for quitting and planning your quit journey can help you to be more successful in quitting smoking.

    But don’t be put off: planning can be done quickly. If you’ve tried to quit before, remember the things that worked for you and the things that didn’t. You can use what you learned to make your plan stronger.

    Here you can learn about your addiction, why you smoke and different ways of quitting. While many people quit without any help, there is always help available.

    Whether you are thinking about quitting, planning to quit, coping with cravings and withdrawal, resisting 'just one cigarette' or even just trying to cut down, your best bet is to call Quitline 13 7848.
