Quit Smoking Advice

We recognise that smoking cessation is very difficult and offer a number of treatments to help with this.

Lung cancer is the fifth most common cancer in Australia and causes 1 in 5 cancer deaths with over 7000 per year.

Smoking causes Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, which is the sixth biggest killer in Australia and the third leading burden of disease, affecting 2 million Australians or 1 in 5 over 40.

It is never too late to stop smoking.  If a patient stops smoking at 45 the acceparated loss of lung function stops and, although the lung damage is irreversible, the further deterioration becomes the same as a non-smoker.
