No More Boondah
No More Boondah is a program developed by Winnunga AHCS that assists people to identify why they smoke, what triggers their smoking and what strategies can help to avoid or delay their smoking.
No More Boondah runs a weekly one hour support group but can also provide phone support, outreach and follow up for those that find it difficult to attend the weekly session.
Often participants have tried to stop smoking before but are encouraged to try again, acknowledging that it can take some people many attempts before they succeed.
Through Winnunga’s GPs we offer access to quit smoking products such as Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) – patches, inhalers and gum as well as oral treatments.
If you are ready to stop smoking or you are thinking about it, we invite you to participate in our No More Boondah program by attending the weekly session and/or participating in phone support and outreach.
Time: 11am to 12pm
Where: Meet at Winnunga’s reception area
