Quit tip number one.

When you decide to quit, you don't have to do it alone. There's heaps of counselling and support available to help you. Talk to your GP. Your GP can advise you of the best combination of medication and personal support. Using the two together is the most effective way to stay quit.

Many quit programs are available to you anytime online. There are heaps out there to choose from. Check out QuitCoach online or download the My QuitBuddy app. For more information, visit the ‘Find support’ section on the Quit HQ website.

Try counselling.

Counselling helps you feel less alone and gives you an outlet to discuss concerns and ask questions. Ask your GP about the counselling options available to you and what local support groups you can join.

Phone support.

Some of the best support you'll get is one-on-one. Call Quitline on 13 78 48 and talk to a counsellor to discuss a personalised plan. Quitline counsellors come from all different backgrounds, and are available 7 days a week from 7:00 AM to 10:00 PM. There are also translators if English is not your first language.

Your quit journey doesn't have to be solo. There are plenty of options out there for support-whether it's a program to guide you through it or someone to lend an ear when the going gets tough.
