Time to Quit

CANSA encourages smokers or those who have started using any tobacco product to get support to quit. Counselling and medication can more than double the chance of a smoker to succeed when attempting to quit. Lockdown is a good time to do so: https://cansa.org.za/civil-society-supports-government-decision-to-uphold-ban-on-tobacco-sales/

CANSA’s free online eKickButt programme helps with quitting – smoking – through a series of emails, surveys and downloads, and guides and mentors you, as you quit smoking, and non-smoking becomes a lifelong habit, not merely the time interval between two cigarettes.

This programme supplies a series of handy tools – tried and tested – to help you quit for good. Sign up for free…
