The Quitline - 0800 778 778
Call the Quitline for free advice and non-judgmental support to quit smoking.
An advisor will talk you through the three parts of the smoking addiction - chemical, emotional and habitual. Through Quitline you can order subsidized nicotine patches, gum or lozenges - $5 for an 8 week supply. We'll also send you a Quit Pack with resources to support you.
If you've called us before and had a relapse feel free to call us again. We're here to help no matter where you are on your journey to becoming smokefree.

Quit@Work is a workplace programme we are piloting with a number of New Zealand's largest employers. It's designed to provide support in the workplace to help people quit and stay quit. In addition to the obvious health benefits, a decrease in workplace smoking rates has been shown to increase productivity - particularly through reduced sick leave and shorter recovery times.
Through the Quitcard programme, health providers distribute exchange cards for subsidised nicotine patches, gum and lozenges to people wanting to quit smoking. Any health provider in New Zealand who has trained in smoking cessation may apply to become a Quitcard provider.
