Beat the cravings
Jump to: 'New Year, New You' Campaign
‘Beat the Cravings’ takes every hour of the day and aligns it to a commonly experienced craving trigger moment.
The concept then shows that our services (iCanQuit and Quitline) are here to help you get through that craving moment.
With a supportive and empathetic tone the campaign increases the achievability of quitting by doing three things:
- Breaking quitting down into small, achievable chunks ––‘just focus on the here and now, get through one craving at a time’
- Increasing awareness that there are multiple smoking cessation support services available to help get through each craving (iCanQuit.com.au and Quitline).
- Provides actionable tactics that can be implemented to help overcome cravings as they arise, such as using nicotine replacement therapy or going for a walk.

Campaign overview - 'New Year, New You'
We know through research and social listening insights that the New Year is a peak quitting period for people who smoke, with people having a mindset of making personal commitments or goals.
To leverage this heightened relevancy, the Cancer Institute NSW is planning a tactical campaign push to encourage people to quit smoking.
The ‘New Year, New You’ campaign aims to support adults 18+ who smoke to keep their new year resolution to quit smoking, driving them to the support services. We welcome everybody’s help in promoting the campaign and messages – if you are interested, please share the assets below or reach out to the team.
