Support from family and friends
Many people find their main support comes from family and friends. Ask them to support you, even when things get tough.
Support from your doctor or health professional.
Many people decide to quit because the doctor has suggested it would be good for their health. Talk to your doctor or health professional about how smoking is affecting your health.
Quitline is a confidential telephone advice and information service for people who want to quit smoking. For the cost of a local call (except mobile phones), a trained advisor can help you in a non-judgemental way to plan and develop strategies to quit smoking and stay stopped.

My QuitBuddy is an app personalised to help you quit smoking, on your terms. Using My QuitBuddy you can choose when to quit. You can choose if you’re ready to quit right now, or intend to quit smoking soon.
My QuitBuddy also allows you to program danger times for when you know a craving might strike. At danger times, My QuitBuddy provides a reminder of why you chose to quit, offers games to distract you or can connect you to the Quitline to make sure you stay quit.
