If you would like to talk to a support service as you start your quit journey, Quitline and local stop smoking services are still operating. Due to the current Covid-19 traffic light settings, there may be some changes in how services operate, but we would encourage you to get in touch.

Face to face support

Get on the right track to quitting.

  • You can meet your Quit Coach face-to-face - at your place or somewhere near you, or talk by phone or online.
  • You can meet a Coach by yourself or as a whānau.
  • You also have the option to join one of their free support groups to help stay motivated.
  • They can give you free nicotine replacement while you're there, or deliver it to you (no trip to the pharmacy needed so no cost at all).
  • They can support you to switch to vaping if you'd prefer or advise about stop smoking medications.
  • Many local services offer incentive programmes for some groups (for example, hapū māmā) and some have childcare facilities. Ask your Quit Coach about these.
  • There are kaupapa Māori services that provide stop-smoking support in many areas.
