Tobacco Reduction: #Smoke Free Still Fierce


Lesbian, bisexual and queer (LBQ) women and smoking

You’ve seen the ads, read the warning labels; most smokers know that smoking is bad for their health. Despite this, LBQ women smoke at more than twice the rate of heterosexual women even though 70% of all LBQ women who smoke say they want to reduce or quit.

If you’re a smoker, you also know that tobacco smoking can be a complex, love/hate relationship enmeshed with identity, mental health and social connections.  Quitting isn’t easy for everyone, but it is possible to break-free from tobacco.

With the support of the NSW Cancer Institute, we’ve produced a #Smoke Free Still Fierce, eductaion campaign designed to help LBQ women smokers to reduce or quit their use of tobacco.

Watch stories from women in the community who stopped smoking, download PDF’s with handy hints and quick tips to quit and tell us how else you would like ACON to help you on your journey to quit smoking.

So if you want to flip the script on LBQ women’s smoking and break-up with tobacco, ACON is here to help you get connected, get creative and get inspired.
