Quitline

 

Overview

Quitline is a national telephone helpline service (managed by the individual states and territories) that provides confidential support for people who would like to quit smoking.

Quitline advisors are professionals with specialist training to assist people with smoking cessation. Advisors will provide callers with a plan for quitting that is tailored to their individual needs, as well as information on different quitting methods and products, and written and other resources.

The service is available at different times across Australia. Information about Quitline for the different states and territories can be accessed here:

All Quitline services are funded to provide culturally sensitive services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Some states also offer a Quitline service specifically for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Please refer to Aboriginal Quitline for more information.
