On quitting: There are people out there that will help you... Don't give in, you don't need the smokes.  Let's start a conversation.Sharon started smoking at 12 years of age, and would go through a pouch of tobacco every couple of days.

She looked after her Dad for five years when he had emphysema. Sharon’s wake-up call came in hospital when she learnt her own lungs were only working at 50% capacity.

Sharon now uses nicotine lozenges and when she thinks she might relapse, she rings her supporters at the Smoking Cessation Program, the gym or the Quitline.
