New Zealand is committed to a goal of a Smokefree Aotearoa by 2025. This will mean:
- our children and grandchildren will be free from tobacco and enjoy tobacco-free lives
- almost no-one will smoke (less than 5% of the population will be current smokers)
- it will be very difficult to sell or supply tobacco.
Through simple steps, with whānau, schools, communities and organisations, we can make Smokefree 2025 a reality. Have smokefree events, smokefree cars, ask whānau to not smoke around the kids, talk to kids about being smokefree - even if you are a smoker it still helps. And we need to encourage and support more people to quit.
