Thinking about quitting?
There are lots of reasons to quit smoking. If you’ve been thinking about quitting smoking, you’ve probably been thinking about the many possible benefits. Being smokefree helps you to live healthier and feel better. It protects your family from second-hand smoke and discourages them from taking it up themselves. But quitting can be tough, and it can take many attempts. That’s why Barwon Health has set up a number of specialist ‘Be Smokefree’ Clinics to give smokers the help they need.
Barwon Health Smokefree clinics
The ‘Be Smokefree’ Clinics at Barwon Health provide individual support over a number of weeks. This approach can be very helpful because:
- It helps you to understand why you smoke and why you want to quit
- It helps you to develop strategies for quitting or cutting back
- It provides you with regular support to manage throughout the quitting process
- It provides non-judgemental encouragement – even if you slip up options for treatment may include Nicotine Replacement Therapy or prescribed medication, which will be arranged through your doctor.
Our specially trained staff can also liaise with your general practitioner and other health professionals to make sure we consider your overall health concerns. There is no cost for the clinic consultations.
