When it comes to quitting everybody’s method and journeys are different. You may be someone who finds it easy to conquer or you may be someone who finds it more challenging to quit.
The good news is, that if one method fails you can always try another, and these methods can be combined to suit you.
Did you know that in 2014 & 2015 one in 7 Australians aged 15 and over were smoking daily? That’s 14% of Australian’s smoking daily (2.5 Million people) with an additional 2% that would irregularly smoke (200,000 people).
