Worried about falling off the smoke-free waka during the busy festive season?

We know how hard it is to remain smoke free, especially during times of celebration. It is easy for old habits to creep in because we can be so busy trying to get everything done that we forget to concentrate on what we need to do for ourselves.

With that in mind, heading into the festive season, here are some tips from our Southern Stop Smoking Service team:

Remember the secret to breaking any habit is to love something greater than the habit

Put a plan in place

Stay focused on the end goal

Use Nicotine Replacement Therapy Products (if necessary)

Go for walks with your drink bottle

Talk to somebody – phone a friend.

The Southern Stop Smoking Service provides free Southern wide service offering community group clinics and one-on-one support with eight site coaches operating across the Southern region.

To get in touch with us phone 0800 925 242 or go online www.stopsmokingservice.co.nz

The service will be closed from 23 December 2022 to 09 January 2023. If you are in need of support during this time, please contact Quitline on 0800 778 778.
