How to stop smoking

Smokers will tell you that they realise the dangers to their health – it’s just really difficult to give up the habit without help. That is why the Scheme introduced the GoSmokeFree programme – making it far easier to kick the habit and regain control of your health!

The GoSmokeFree programme is an evidence-based stop-smoking programme designed around motivational interviewing, behaviour change, medication and support, and gives you the best chance of quitting and staying quit. The GoSmokeFree Stop Smoking Programme is available at various pharmacies throughout South Africa using a trained Nursing Sister or Pharmacist, so access to the programme is easy.
