Free Cessation Services

Some people have an easier time quitting than others; some people may try more than a few times before they succeed. While most quitters quit by themselves, there are quit services that could help you quit and are completely free-of-charge.

Counselling and Medications (“Mail to Quit” Programme included)

Smoking cessation counselling coupled with medication (e.g. nicotine replacement therapy) is the most effective way of assisting smokers to quit. Cessation drugs help ease withdrawal symptoms so that you have less cravings. They are clinically tested and proved of their safety and efficacy in smoking cessation.

To facilitate quitting smoking at home, Integrated Centres on Smoking Cessation also provides free postal services of smoking cessation medication, supplemented by follow-up telephone counselling.

After assessment, eligible persons will receive the medications after three working days. Those with chronic illness on medication, or who have had allergic reactions to smoking cessation medications, or who are pregnant, would need to visit the smoking cessation clinic for doctor’s assessment.
