Much of the damage caused by smoking is reversible, and the earlier a person quits, the more chance their body has to repair itself.

The Make Smoking History campaign was established in 2000 with the goal to reduce smoking in Western Australia.

MAKE SMOKING HISTORY

The campaign is an initiative of Cancer Council Western Australia and is jointly funded by the Department of Health WA, Healthway and Cancer Council WA.

Make Smoking History seeks to:

  • assist smokers to quit by providing them with information and resources to help plan their quit attempt

  • influence public opinion and policy on key smoking and health issues

  • raise awareness of the harms of smoking and the benefits of quitting.
