Products and Supports to Help You Quit

Nicotine Replacement and Other Products and Services to Help You Quit

It is not easy to quit smoking but there are products, services and self-help techniques that can help a smoker get through the inevitable tough times and break the addiction for good.

It is the nicotine in cigarettes that addicts you to smoking and it has been described as being harder to quit than heroine. It makes sense to use the products and services available that can help you succeed at quitting.

For smokers, the cost of these products is similar to the cost of smoking but over the long run smokers will save themselves thousands of dollars annually by quitting.

Your healthcare provider can help you decide which quit smoking medications are suitable for you. For people looking for other options there is everything from counselling and quit smoking support groups to hypnosis, acupuncture and laser therapy that may help.

Check out these self-help options:

  • Smokers' Helpline - Call toll free 1-877-513-5333 or go online at to reach this Canadian Cancer Society bilingual service. It offers callers with free information, advice and support from trained Quit Specialists. It is also helpful for people who want to help someone quit.
