Quit smoking

Quit smoking

Want to quit smoking?

Don't listen to people who tell you it can't be done, take the first step and let our trained Quit educator and community health nurse show you the way.

Our Fresh Start Smoking Cessation Program aims to help people who want to quit entirely or reduce their smoking.

Our Quit educator will use a one hour assessment and then a series of follow up consultations to develop a strategy based on your individual needs that offers you the best chance of getting off the smokes.

Behaviour and emotions play a major role in why people smoke and we will identify the type of smoker you are and your triggers to develop your strategy.

We can also provide information on products and medications to assist with nicotine addiction and withdrawal.

An appointment costs $5 with a healthcare card or $10 without a health care card - pocket change compared to the cost of a packet of smokes!

To book an appointment with our quit educator call our Eaglehawk site on 5434 4300.

So, the million dollar question is - will it work?

Well, there's no guarantees but we can let a past Quit program participant offer their view.

"The Quit program gave me an opportunity to look at the reasons why I smoke," they said.

"It made me realise that I had certain behaviours attached to smoking. Once I knew what these behaviours were it was a lot easier to change them.

"It was good to talk to someone to help me understand why I smoke and help me change the habits that I have formed."

Well, what are you waiting for? Call our Quit educator on 5434 4300 - it's time to butt out!
