'I Quit' campaign helps smokers kick habit

Stop smoking campaign I Quit helps these men tackle their long-time habit

PROUD: Mr Iqbal Hadi Subiarso dealt with their smoking habit with the help of HPB’s ‘I Quit’ campaign.

For the past 10 years, he smoked a pack of cigarettes a day, spending $300 a month on his habit.

With the help of family and friends as well as Health Promotion Board’s (HPB) I Quit campaign, Mr Iqbal, 26, cut the habit down to a maximum two cigarettes a day, once a week.

He is also fasting from smoking for the season of Ramadan and hopes to quit completely by the end of the fasting month.

Mr Iqbal’s smoking cessation journey began last December in conjunction with his goal to lose weight.

He is one of more than 10,000 people who have signed up for HPB’s I Quit campaign since it began in 2011 .

The New Paper spoke to him and another former smoker about their journey to quit.
