CHAMPIX® is designed to help reduce the impact of nicotine during the quitting process. CHAMPIX® works in two ways; it can reduce cravings and block the effect of nicotine at the same time so if you do smoke, you might not get the usual feelings of reward, so it might be easier to resist.
After reading this, you may be interested to learn more about CHAMPIX® and its accompanying support programme www.liferewards.co.nz (Please note Liferewards is currently in transition and is being replaced with a new support programme called mytimetoquit). You may also wish to talk to a healthcare professional, perhaps your doctor or a clinic nurse. Other recommended sources of information and support to stop smoking include:
- Quitline0800 778 778; www.quit.org.nz
- Aukati kaipaipawww.aukatikaipaipa.co.nz
- Tala Pasifikawww.talapasifika.org.nz
In the meantime, give some more thought to the giving up process. The decision to quit smoking is an important one. When you pick the right time for you, make sure you are committed to quitting.
