“Quitting smoking can be one of the most difficult, yet rewarding things a person can do. Most smokers say they would like to quit, and may have tried at least once. Some are successful the first time, but many other people try a number of times before they finally give up for good.”
The Australian Government QuitNow website has some great resources available to help your understanding of the dangers associated with smoking, and the many health benefits you will feel if you give up. Information is available on:
- How smoking damages your body
- Steps for getting ready to quit
- Coping with withdrawal symptoms
- Health benefits of quitting
- Cold turkey, medications and other methods
- Started smoking again?
There are also some great resources available for young people on the OxyGen website, including videos to watch, games to play and some great ideas for avoiding pressure to smoke.
