In a recent survey conducted by the MRBI (Market Research Bureau of Ireland) – Healthy Ireland 2016, it was discovered that:

  • 33% of smokers who saw their GP or Pharmacist in the past 12 months had discussed ways of giving up smoking.
  • 27% of those who saw a hospital doctor had a conversation about quitting.
  • 48% of all who have smoked in the past year have made an attempt to quit during that period

Three in five smokers are at least thinking about quitting. 11% are currently trying to quit, and a further 20% are actively planning to quit, primarily for health reasons, or more recently financial reasons!

Nicotine replacement therapies*

*NB - It's important that you don't smoke when using nicotine replacement therapies.
