The thought of missing out on many years with those he loves was more than enough for Vincent Sun to ditch smoking and now he’s urging others to follow in his footsteps.
Vincent had tried to give up smoking a number of times in the past and decided if he was going to quit for good, he needed professional help.
“I’d tried to quit maybe four or five times, but there’d come a moment where I felt stressed and I’d end up smoking again. I didn’t want that to happen this time”.
Vincent found the The Alfred’s Smokefree Clinic where he received the support he needed.
The clinic helped Vincent with a tailored quitting plan, including choice of stop smoking medicines and strategies to stay on track
Vincent hasn’t touched a cigarette since February and credits the team for helping him ditch smoking for good.
Alfred Health Senior Pharmacist Kelly Burton said after enduring a tough 2020, the new year posed a fantastic time to quit.
“What better way to say goodbye to a difficult year, than start the new one feeling fresh and empowered. Quitting smoking can lift mood, boost confidence, give you more energy and put more money in your pocket. It’s also the single best step you can take to improve your health.”
If you’re looking to quit smoking the best place to start is a call the Quitline on137848 or talking to your doctor, pharmacist or health professional.
