makara patapa / Quit Smoking

There are many reasons that people want to quit smoking. They could be for their health, for their family, or to improve their lifestyle and finances.

Nunami Sculthorpe-Green has been travelling across Lutruwita to listen to and share the stories of people in our community who have or are in the process of quitting smoking.

She heard some fantastic success quit stories and learned why people quit, how they did it, and what help they could access to keep them on track.

Visit  Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre – Makara patapa ( for more information and to hear the stories from our people across lutruwita/Tasmania.
