At Cromwell Medical Centre we can provide advice and encouragement to stop smoking. We encourage all our patients to be smokefree. If you are thinking about quitting, please feel free to come and talk to a Doctor or Nurse for advice.
There are some excellent new medications available to help you quit, and nearly all medications are now fully funded that make quitting much easier. Using patches or medication greatly increases your chances of quitting, as well as reducing the torture of nicotine withdrawal! Stopping smoking is the best gift you can give yourself and your family. It takes the average smoker many attempts to quit, the message is to keep trying even if you have been unsuccessful in the past.
