Stop Smoking Service
Stopping smoking is one of the hardest but the best decisions you can make for your own health and for the health of your entire family.
The Fono can support you in your journey to stop smoking. Our doctors, nurses and community teams can help you and we have samples of nicotine patches and gum on site at each of our clinics. Ask your Fono doctor, nurse or community support worker about how we can support you to quit for good.
One option might be a 7-week, face-to-face, stop smoking programme, where you’ll be supported through your journey by a qualified coach. There’s the option of one-to-one coaching or attending group-based sessions. This Stop Smoking Service is delivered in the Auckland & Waitemata regions by The Fono and ProCare.

The Stop Smoking Service is for people wanting to participate, and available to anyone who is eligible for publically funded health services and lives, works or plays in the Auckland & Waitemata DHB regions.
The service is being delivered from a range of sites throughout the Auckland and Waitemata regions, including Fono clinics and community-based locations. The service can also come to you, so if you’re doing one-to-one coaching, it might be easiest for your coach to meet you at home, talk on the phone, or meet at a public venue such as a café.
