Handy Resources to Quit Smoking

Do you want to quit smoking?

Maybe you have a friend who wishes they could spend their money on something other than cigarettes. Perhaps you’re worried about a spouse who goes through a lot of tobacco in a day.

Here are some important resources that you should be aware of.

Quitting smoking can be one of the toughest things a person does. It’s key to know what to do and where to go for help. Health Canada has made it a bit easier for everyone. As of June 2012, all cigarette packages sold in Canada have a toll-free quitline number and website clearly printed on them. All someone has to do is look at the package in their hand and voila - the number and website is there. Meantime, BC residents can call 8-1-1 to be connected to a smoking cessation coach or visit www.quitnow.ca for online support. 

All resources are free and available 24 hours a day. So, after the kids are in bed or when you get home from a night shift, there’s help.

Have you seen the information on the packages? Have you called the free numbers or checked out the websites?
