Help with quitting smoking

You should talk to your doctor or general practitioner (GP) to find out about getting help to quit smoking. They can give you advice on nicotine replacement therapy and other medicine to help quit.

Your doctor or GP can complete a Quitline referral form for a counsellor to call you at a convenient time.
