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 you quit.
Your doctor or GP can complete a Quitline referral form for a counsellor to call you at a convenient time.
Quitline is a free telephone counselling and support service.
You can call 13 78 48 (13 QUIT) Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 8pm, and Saturdays from 2pm to 5pm.
Outside these hours, you can leave a message and a counsellor will call you back.
You can also register for a call back or chat online at the Quitline website.
Quitline NT is also on Facebook.
