It s getting more and more expensive to smoke but it s never been cheaper to quit. That s the message from the Counties Manu- kau District Health Board s Smokefree team after the New Year when smoking became a more expensive addiction. On January 1, the price of cigarettes and loose tobacco went up another 10 percent as the second of three scheduled tobacco tax increases took effect. By comparison, nic- otine replacement ther- apy (patches, lozenges and gum) is available for just $3 each for an eight- week supply and can double your chances of quitting successfully. The health board s smokefree programme manager Ingrid Minett is urging everyone who smokes to beat the price increase and consider quitting this summer. The cost of smoking has gone up but the cost of quitting hasn t changed. So if you stop smok- ing now you ll be saving money. You might also be saving your life because one in two people who smoke will die as a result of their smoking. Around 82,000 people smoke in Counties Manukau and about 5000 New Zealanders die each year as a result of tobacco, she says. Smoking is the num- ber one preventable cause of death, disease and disability in New Zealand. For just $3, people can get hold of an eight-week supply of gum, patches or lozenges at any time from Quitline or from any health professional such as a doctor or nurse. They ll take the edge off your cravings and make you more likely to stay smokefree, Mrs Minett says. You ll double your chances of quitting for good. Patches, gum and lozenges lessen the effect of nicotine cravings so you can focus on building new routines without distractions. They pro- vide enough nicotine to manage cravings without exposing you to the 4000-plus chemicals found in cigarettes. Being smokefree is supported by the board s Creating a Better Future strategy.
