Help to Quit

Here's what you need to do

Once you've registered with us online and have consented to being contacted by us, your free quit support may consist of email encouragement and Facebook private messaging support.

You can join our expert moderated online community and receive free support, guidance and inspiration in a safe place on Facebook & Instagram.

After registering we look at what you need and will email you a form with a simple contract of service terms and conditions, which you must read and acknowledge to receive our free services. If you qualify to receive online telehealth counselling we'll work out a suitable time and send you an email with a link to join your online Cliniko consultation. For email support we'll email you forms from Cliniko to fill out.

Here's how we might work together

Here's what you need to know

Smoking is triggered not only by an addiction to nicotine, but also by your habits and emotions, so getting help for behavioural and emotional aspects comes from a Counsellor.

A Counsellor may educate, advise, encourage and offer behavioural interventions.

Having a Counsellor help you on your free quit journey is about improving outcomes like 

  •  reducing the impact of stressful situations
  •  decreasing distress
  •  minimising symptoms
  •  improving wellbeing
  •  reducing risk
  •  improving communication and coping skills
  •  and making sure you meet your goals.

As a MNZAC Registered Counsellor I operate under a code of ethics and offer ethical emotional support but any health information shared on our platforms shouldn't be considered professional medical advice and shouldn't be solely relied upon. Please consult your trusted GP or other Health Practitioner registered under the Competence Assurance Act 2003 if you're uncertain.

Alternative methods

It’s important to note that some quitters prefer to stop smoking by themselves entirely, or to vape without nicotine as a way of quitting, and many recall the withdrawal from nicotine to be less traumatic than anticipated.

Others prefer to take stop smoking medications prescribed by their GP. Some prefer subsidised Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) in patch, gum or lozenge form to ease physical withdrawal symptoms when quitting smoking.
