Did you know that smoking rates in LGBTIQ+ communities are more than 1.5 times the national average? We’re here to support people in LGBTIQ+ communities who smoke to quit.

We all know that when you stop smoking, your physical health improves. But physical wellbeing is just the beginning. Stopping smoking also improves your mental health and reduces your stress levels. When you stop smoking, you free up money previously spent on cigarettes to put towards your lifestyle goals like holidays and events, savings, a new car, dining out and other experiences. As well as greater savings, you free up your time to do the things that are important to you. Research shows that stopping smoking also improves recovery from alcohol and other drug use.

Quit has collaborated with LGBTIQ+ communities to ensure Quitline provides an inclusive and culturally safe space to achieve your stop smoking goals. Quitline counsellors can chat to you in a culturally appropriate and accessible way. You’ll also find peers working in the service.

Quitline counsellors offer personalised support over your quitting journey. They can help you plan, make and sustain your quit attempt.

Calling Quitline increases your chance of quitting successfully. Call the Quitline on 13 7848 or request a Quitline callback.
