Support for Aboriginal smokers
The giveupsmokes.com.au website is specifically designed to support Aboriginal people to quit smoking. Visit the site to find supports and tools to quit smoking, including information on the Ways to quit.
If you are an Aboriginal person who wants to quit smoking, the Quitline has Aboriginal counsellors available to support you or answer questions on 13 78 48.
Other supports and tools available to assist you to quit smoking include using nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) such as gum or patches, and trying doctor-prescribed medications specially designed to help you quit smoking. Some NRT products are available at a reduced price through the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme if you get a prescription from your doctor.
Some people find the My QuitBuddy app really helpful with its tips and strategies for quitting.
Hearing the quitting stories of others can be useful, particularly when they have gone through similar challenges to your own. Check out the stories of Aboriginal people who have quit smoking at
