For your best chance of quitting smoking for good, know what you’ll gain and have a clear plan that suits your lifestyle:
1. Use our cost calculator to work out how much you’ll save
If you smoke 10 cigarettes a day, you’ll save about $80 every week. That’s almost $4,200 a year. What could that mean for you? A much-needed holiday, new furniture or a little extra breathing space in the budget? Use this knowledge to set rewards and goals.
2. Understand your triggers
What causes you to crave a cigarette? Perhaps you reach for one when you’re feeling stressed, having coffee, during tea breaks or when another driver’s cut you off. Knowing your triggers helps you plan how you’ll overcome them.
3. Consider using the NRT products and Quitline 13 7848 together
Smoking is about more than nicotine addiction alone. Usually, a combination of nicotine addiction plus certain situations, thoughts and feelings keeps us smoking. Quitting is about dealing with the nicotine addiction as well as those emotional or situational triggers.
NRT helps you overcome your nicotine addiction while the Quitline helps you create a plan to deal with your other triggers.
You can chat to Quitline or your GP about which NRT products are right for you. It’s also good to know that NRT products will cost you less if you purchase them with a script from your GP.
