Quit Blogs

New Quitline website and blogs coming soon.

Hi Quit Whanau!

We wanted you to be the first to know that in the next couple of weeks we are going to launch a new Quitline website including an updated blogs experience.

Firstly, don't panic: all your old blogs, supporters and badges will remain the same. However, the pages will look slightly different, so it might take some time to get used to.

So - why are we telling you?
Well... while we swap over to the new site, both the Quitline website and these blogs will be unavailable for up to 12 hours. Sorry for this inconvenience, but the Quitline tech goblins need time to move their pixels and code around the cyberworld. Rest assured we'll be back as soon as possible with a shiny new website for you all.

Improvements to the new website include:
- A completely refreshed look and streamlined functions
- An experience optimised for mobile phones (finally!)
- Better member functions and a simplified sign-up experience

The exact timing of this new website launch is not known yet, but we expect it to be very early in June. We'll try and update you closer to the time.

Thanks - The Quitline Team

Stats Update: 17 days smokefree

Smokefree days: 17 days
Cigarettes NOT smoked: 340
Total savings: $450.50

Don't blog everyday, but glad to say I've stayed smoke free and don't have any cravings.
I see there are a few new people who have started their quit journey, my advice to you is, don't give up. Once you get past that first week, the journey only gets easier.

I was on the nicotine gum for the first week personally, but while taking it, my blood pressure would fall and I'd get a dizzy feeling. Since stopping the gum though non of that has happened, I just replaced it with standard gum and think to myself it's the nicotine gum, great placebo haha!
Anyways good luck to all!
Have a blessed day!

Good for you on day 17 Ray. Well done. I went cold turkey when I quit,but I did have the first week in hospital. They offered me nicotine replacement, but decided to try cold turkey and here I am. Have a great day.
