On supporting someone to quit: You're actually helping people to change their own lives.  Let's start a conversation.Laura is the house co-ordinator at a Supported Independent Living home near Hobart.

She is determined to break the pattern of peer pressure and chain smoking that can be a barrier to her clients’ efforts to give up smoking.

She says her role as a support worker is to build a rapport and have a continuing conversation with clients about quitting. If they have a relapse, Laura encourages them to keep on trying to stop smoking.
