Quitline 13 7848 (13 QUIT)
The Quitline is a confidential telephone advice and information service. For the cost of a local call (except mobile phones), a trained advisor can help you to plan and develop strategies to quit smoking and stay stopped.
You can speak to an advisor as many times as you wish, or use the Quitline Call-back service. The Call-back service is a series of calls providing support during planning, setting your quit date and staying quit.
Your GP or other health professional, with your consent, can also refer you to the Quitline and a Quitline advisor will call you at a time convenient to you.
