Plain packaging on cigarettes is in place from 14 March. This means standardised packaging will be sold at retailers with graphic images and warnings.

You might find this change is really helpful in helping you act on the idea of stopping smoking.

We have a free quit smoking service for Asian people and their families. This includes a language and culturally specific service available for those who live in the Waitemata district. We have a flexible, home visiting service or in the setting of your choice.

We speak Korean, Mandarin and Cantonese, and offer a free interpreting service for Asian people who speak other languages.

Contact details, and more information, on our Asian Smokefree services page.
