It's time to quit smoking
World Smokefree Day is on May
31 and various promotions are
planned to help people quit smok-
Smokefree promotions are
planned on May 26 at the
Westfield malls at Albany, Hen-
derson, Glenfield and Takapuna,
with volunteers from a range of
organisations on hand to talk with
people about the range of free
options available to help them or
their family members quit.
Agencies include the Waite-
mata District Health Board,
HealthWest, Waiora PHO, Har-
bour Health, Procare, Te Puna
PHO, the Pacific Quit Service and
It s an opportunity to stand
alongside others in a global
movement for change -- it s an
extremely positive and em-
powering experience, especially
for those who use World Smoke-
free Day as their date to quit
smoking, Waitemata DHB smo-
kefree co-ordinator Leanne Kirton
We re inviting people to join
with others around the globe, to
step up and assert their freedom
this May. Too often tobacco use is
presented as a matter of personal
choice, but it s hardly a choice
when it s an addiction, is it?
World Smokefree Day is an
international event created by the
World Health Organisation to
support and celebrate smokefree
lives. Ms Kirton says the aim is to
create a supportive environment
that encourages people to consider
quitting smoking, and to highlight
the vast range of support that s
Even just using the patches,
gum or lozenges doubles your
chances -- and those who also have
support from services like Quit-
line are up to five times more
likely to succeed.
The first steps in the journey to
a smokefree life could also be the
perfect opportunity to start
increasing the bank balance.
For a 20-a-day smoker,
quitting the habit can amount to
an extra $100 a week, $400 a
month or over $5000 a year.
That s a nice bonus.
Some people beat the addiction
on the first try, others have a
couple of goes but no matter how
long you ve been a smoker, you
can beat this -- there s no need for
it to define your future.
All you need to do is set a date,
talk to Quitline or the health ser-
vice you see most and get hold of
some patches, gum or lozenges
and go for it.
For help to quit smoking, people
can contact the following cess-

BABIES' HEALTH A PRIORITY
Time to quit: AUT University
nursing senior lecturer Grace Wong
says smoking while pregnant is
Pregnant women should not be
smoking, AUT University nursing
senior lecturer Grace Wong
Rather than just cutting back,
pregnant women smokers
should be quitting altogether,
She says babies whose
mothers quit smoking
completely during pregnancy
have significantly higher birth
weights than those whose
mothers cut down on the
number of cigarettes.
Smoking during pregnancy
exposes babies to toxins which
can lead to spontaneous
abortion, she says.
Mrs Wong says nicotine
replacement therapy helps
relieve symptoms and increase
the chances of quitting.
''Gum or lozenges are safer
for pregnant women and their
babies than getting nicotine via
a cigarette,'' Mrs Wong says.
Ask a nurse about smoking
cessation and fully subsidised
nicotine replacement therapy.
Mrs Wong is director of
Smokefree Nurses Aotearoa/
New Zealand, set up in 2007
for nurses to actively help
smokers to quit.
It was International Nurses
Day on May 12.
