5 reasons why building a plan will help you quit

Want to quit but no idea where to start? Here are 5 reasons why building a plan is the best first step.

The first step of quitting is making a plan. Make a plan to suit your lifestyle and your reasons for quitting.

Use our simple online tool called Your Quit Plan, and you'll be more likely to quit successfully.

Here are 5 reasons why:

1. Set your own date

This gives you time to get ready and is an important milestone to work toward.

2. No more guessing 

Your Quit Plan will explain what triggers you to reach for a ciggie and how to manage these situations and cravings.

3. Tailored nicotine replacement product options

Can’t decide between a patch, inhalator or lozenge? Your Quit Plan will explain and suggest options that will work best for you.

4. All you need in one place 

Get the best of Quit Victoria’s services and advice in one place – you don’t have to search to find personalised help.

5. We're always here
