Guide to qualification
Access to a funded course of CHAMPIX®
You may qualify for a fully-funded 12 week course of CHAMPIX®. Check whether you meet the funding criteria by checking the guide to the left.
If you don't qualify for a funded course of CHAMPIX®, it costs approximately $7 a day for the 12 week course of treatment. This is less than what many people spend on cigarettes each day. Did you know that if you smoke 12 cigarettes a day this adds up to over $2500 over a year?¥
After reading this, you may be interested to learn more about CHAMPIX® and its accompanying support programme www.liferewards.co.nz (Please note Liferewards is currently in transition and is being replaced with a new support programme called mytimetoquit). You may also wish to talk to a healthcare professional, perhaps your doctor or a clinic nurse. Other recommended sources of information and support to stop smoking include:
- Quitline0800 778 778; www.quit.org.nz
- Aukati kaipaipawww.aukatikaipaipa.co.nz
- Tala Pasifikawww.talapasifika.org.nz
In the meantime, give some more thought to the giving up process. The decision to quit smoking is an important one. When you pick the right time for you, make sure you are committed to quitting.
