Making your home smoke-free

Being smoke-free means living smoke-fee. Prepare your house and home to remove the old temptations and reminders.

Set the stage for change. Do you want to save your choices or add your own? It is easy and free.

What will you do to prepare your home and work?

  • Having smoking paraphernalia lying around can be a trigger. Clean up the ashtrays and get rid of the lighters, and make the places you used to go to smoke into smoke-free zones.
  • Get rid of clutter, and remove the odour of smoke from walls, carpets and furniture. Scrubbing with warm water and white vinegar or baking soda does wonders.
  • Stock up on all the supplies you will need to support your quit. Have healthy snacks, sugar-less gum and candy available to help with withdrawal symptoms and cravings. If you are using any medications to assist with your quit, have these available.
  • You are what you wear and you are not a smoker so don’t smell like one. Give your clothes a good clean and if possible hang them outside to freshen up. Dry clean your coats and suits.
