Quit Smoking

Tobacco smoking harms almost every organ in your body. Smoking is a major risk factor for many diseases and health conditions including heart disease, stroke, peripheral vascular disease, and many cancers. When you quit smoking, you reduce the risk of these life threatening diseases.

Quitting smoking has a significant impact on your health. Not only does quitting improve your health, it can improve the health of the people around you. The body is resilient and will begin to repair itself once smoking ceases – it is never too late to quit smoking! There is lots of free support available for your quit journey.

Workplaces that promote health can play an important role in supporting workers on their quit smoking journey. The Get Healthy at Work online Action Planner has a range of initiatives and strategies that workplaces can implement to support workers to quit smoking.
