Geraldton event helps smokers to kick habit

Date posted: 30 June 2016

About 100 people turned out to a World No Tobacco Day community event held by the Geraldton Regional Aboriginal Medical Service (GRAMS) last month in Western Australia (WA).

GRAMS Chief Executive, Deborah Woods, said the use of the Smokerlyzer machine was an eye-opener to many, as it recorded the amount of carbon dioxide in people's lungs as smokers or passive smokers.

'The results surprise everyone, encouraging some to chat further with the GRAMS tobacco team about how to quit or where to find support to reduce smoking as a starting point,' Ms Woods said.

Ms Woods said that GRAMS aimed to provide the guidance and incentive to help people give up smoking for good.
