Characters come alive

By Laura Kavanagh It is not every day a gingerbread man, Harry Potter and a princess come to school. But all of these characters and more made an appearance last Thursday at St Benedict’s school in Khandallah. The school was a running a scholastic book fair during the week and decided a dress up competition was in order. Pupils and teachers dressed up for the occasion, the teachers’ theme being The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

Police have begun an investigation into a stabbing that occurred in Paparangi Monday afternoon. The police were called to a house on Helston Road at about 2pm by a member of the public, where a man in his 40s appeared with multiple stab wounds. Police were on scene shortly after and were quickly able to locate a second person apparently

involved in the incident which had occurred at a nearby residential address. The injured male was taken to Wellington Hospital with what is believed to be a number of injuries, although it has not been confirmed if these are as a result of any stabbing. At last report these injuries were not believed to be life threatening. The property was secured on Monday, and a scene examination

continued on Tuesday with the specialist search group looking to locate the weapon used, believed to be a knife. A 21-year-old man was in Police custody and appeared in the Wellington District Court on Tuesday facing a charge of wounding with intent. The two men are known to each other and Police were not looking for anyone else in relation to the incident.

Detective Senior Sergeant John van den Heuvel says, "It is early days and we are still working through the details of what has occurred. “We are confident that, while a serious incident, is an isolated one." The male stabbed this afternoon is reported to be in a stable condition in Wellington Hospital and Police were planning to interview him in detail over the coming days.

Wellington man bringing tribal elders home By Laura Kavanagh A Wellington born photographer is taking an extraordinary journey this August in the rainforest of Borneo. David Metcalf and Australian life coach Rex Urwin are taking an eight day journey to bring tribal elders of the Dayak tribe back to their original village. David and Rex first met the Dayaks of Setulang village a year ago while on an expedition in the rainforest close to the border with Malaysia, where they heard the Dayaks’ tale of displacement. The Dayaks moved out of their ancestral home in the 1970s.

David says very little has been written about the Dayaks and the effect that industry and loss of land has had on the Dayak way of life. David and Rex have pledged to grant the Dayaks their wish, and at the same time raise awareness of the threats - both cultural and environmental - faced by the area known as 'Asia's Amazon'. A number of people will be joining David and Rex on their journey, including Jason Houston, a film-maker from Canada, who will be creating a multimedia documentary to highlight the Dayaks’ plight and record the extraordinary interactions between a group of artists and musicians

from around the world. Also making the journey will be Wolfgang Widmoser, a Germanborn painter, Robi Navicula, leader of one of Indonesia's best-known grunge bands, and Kevin Locke, a Native American dancer, storyteller, cultural ambassador and recording artist. The men are now crowdfunding for the $15,000 needed to make the documentary. David says he is looking forward to reconnecting with the Dayaks. "This journey back is really about a message of unity, and how critical it is that we start listening to these wise, sacred cultures who respect the land and who have

learned to live in harmony with the planet for many thousands of years." David will be starting his journey in August.

Wednesday May 28, 2014 By Laura Kavanagh A local man is braving the elements and New Zealand’s rugged terrain to raise money for charity. Rob Candy is setting off to trek New Zealand’s Te Araroa trail this October to raise money and awareness on behalf of two charities, Raleigh International, and People. The $30,000 raised by the trek will allow 10 Kenyan children to go to school on an all expenses paid full year scholarship on behalf of charity People, and 20 Tanzanian young people to take part in a life changing expedition with Raleigh International. The 3,000 kilometre Te Araroa trail was first opened in 2011 and spans the length of New Zealand. Currently based in Wellington, on a working holiday visa from England, Rob is planning to work through the winter months and then set off around the end of October/earlyNovember. The journey should take approximately four to five months and will see Rob scaling mountains, trekking ridges, valleys,

Churton Park School tackles bullying By Laura Kavanagh

LEADERSHIP SHOWN: Peer Mediators from Churton Park School. From back left: Lilli Bryant, Olivia Jones, Charlie England, Charlotte Jones, Venice Robinson. From front left: Tanisha Mistry, Cian Donovan, Angus Mudie, Alex Keegan.



Churton Park School is passionate about combatting bullying. Last Friday, in honour of Pink Shirt Day, the students came to school wearing Pink. Pink Shirt Day is an annual event celebrated in many countries around the world, encouraging people to talk about bullying and take action against it. Pink Shirt Day began in Nova Scotia, Canada in 2007, and is a way of showing those being bullied that there are many people around who care. Churton Park School has been proactive in its approach to bullying, training up 29 pupils acting as Peer Mediators. The Peer mediators have taken part in a peer mediation pro-

gramme issued by the Peace Foundation. If students have a problem or disagreement, they can approach a peer mediator, who can help mediate between the two parties. They got a chance last Friday to introduce themselves to their designated classes so the students know who to go to for help. Deputy Principal Di Patchett says the peer mediators have been very excited about talking to the classes, and have been great role models for the school. “Leadership is very important to us. “They feel like heroes.” Churton Park School has been running the Peer Mediation Programme for several years. “It’s a great initiative because it is peers working with peers,” Di says.

HARD WORK REWARDED: Entrepreneurial scientist and inventor, Sir Ray Avery, left, chats to Lucy Sulzberger of Ngaio and Dylan Chambers of Johnsonville - recipients of $6,000 Freemasons Universit y Scholarships. Sir Ray presented the scholarships at Parliament’s Legislative Council Chamber on May 20. PHOTO SUPPLIED.

By Laura Kavanagh Two local university students were rewarded for their hard work by receiving Freemasons scholarships of $6,000 each last week. Dylan Chambers of Johnsonville and Lucy Sulzberger of Ngaio were two of 30 students who were presented with the scholarships totalling $208,000. Dylan is completing Honours for his Bachelor of Arts majoring in international relations at Victoria University of Wellington. The multilinguist plans to do a Master’s degree in international relations at a European university. Following practical work experience as an intern for a European political institution or non-governmental organisation, he will eventually apply to work for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade in New Zealand. Lucy is three years into a medical degree at Otago Medical School, and is spending 2014 completing her Bachelor of Medical Science Honours year at Otago University.

She is working under the supervision of Professor Swee Tan and other members of the Gillies McIndoe Research Institute (GMRI) team, pioneering the future of cancer treatment. She has plans to complete a PhD in medicine. Sir Ray Avery GNZM handed the A-grade students their scholarships in Parliament’s Legislative Council Chamber on May 20. Nine postgraduate students

were awa rded a total of $82,000 and 21 university students a total of $126,000. For the last 36 years, Freemasons New Zealand has funded nearly $4.42 million in scholarships to 1,051 students. When addressing the students, Sir Ray Avery, pharmaceutical scientist, inventor and social entrepreneur, stressed how important it is to always rally talented people. “No one is as clever as all

of us. “All great leaders mobilise the skills of everyone into powerful tools to overcome the impossible.” Freemasons Grand Master John Litton congratulated parents and families of the scholarship recipients. “As Freemasons, we see one of the benefits of education being a greater tolerance of other people’s views and opinions.”

Mr Foster-Bell is up against Labour deputy leader Grant Robertson and Green candidate James Shaw, both who look set to be MPs next year.

But he will be back in Parliament after the General Election in September, whether or not he wins the Wellington Central electorate seat on his second attempt.

He entered Parliament in 2013 after the resignation of Jackie Blue and after a dis-

tinguished career in foreign affairs. North Island Regional Chair Malcolm Plimmer congratulated Mr Foster-Bell on his selection. “Paul was an outstanding candidate in 2011 and has made an excellent contribution as a list MP based in Wellington and the Hutt Valley,” he said. He was promoted to Deputy Chair of the Justice and Electoral Select Committee earlier this year.

By Laura Kavanagh Students from Newlands Intermediate performed this week at the ASB 2014 Stage Challenge. Eighteen schools from across the Wellington region took part in two massive nights of youth creativity and expression, with this being the second year that Newlands Intermediate has entered the competition. Newlands intermediate chose the theme It’s How You Dance, with a storyline about two young people, who are told they are not good

enough. Student director Brooke Newman says there has been a lot of planning and choreography since last year, which involved creating and teaching all the dances. “The choreography is fun and exciting, with a mixture of jazz, contemporary and hip hop.” This is the first time Brooke has directed a student production, and she says she would like to do more directing in the future. “It’s been an amazing experience.” Dance teacher Brie Jessen-Vau-

jham says Brooke has been very dedicated, turning up at every rehearsal. There were over 100 students from Newlands Intermediate involved, doing a number of jobs, including costume design. Stage Challenge is now in its 22nd year, with 18 shows, 11 locations, 200 schools, 16,000 participants and an audience of 25,000. The Wellington shows were held at the TSB Arena on May 26 and 27.

Students march against sexual violence By Laura Kavanagh Over 300 students from Victoria University of Wellington marched from Kelburn campus to Aro Valley last week in response to recent sexual attacks on pathways around the campus. The event called “Let Me Go Home” was organised by the Victoria University of Wellington Students' Association (VUWSA), VUWSA Women’s Group and the Victoria branch of Youth for UN Women. President of VUWSA, Sonya Clark says the event highlighted how attitudes and behaviours about sexual violence need to change.

“The key message is that rape and sexual violence are not tolerated in our community. “As students, we want to see a societal change where rape and sexual violence are not just the way things are.” Sonya says in the recent sexual assault cases, there have been implications the women should not have been walking alone. “Telling poor students to catch a taxi home is simply not good enough. “As a community we need to be addressing the core of these issues.” President of the VUWSA Women’s Group Chrissy Brown says they want to show that they are a community

that does not accept sexual assault as a given and they will foster a community that rejects rape culture. Although led by students, the organisers hope that the wider community gets involved. “Changing culture requires a whole community approach,” Sonya says. The march departed at 5pm on May 20 outside the Hub, Kelburn Campus and headed to the Aro Valley Community Centre. It was followed by speeches and discussion with local leaders invited to respond. Sonya says the response so far shows this is an issue that students are concerned about and more action is needed.

Sea cadets win national regatta By Dave Crampton

WINNING: Matt Ohlsson from Johnsonville and Kieran Clay from Churton Park as part of the winning sea cadet team. PHOTO SUPPLIED.

Two local sea cadets have played a big part in winning a National Sea Cadets regatta in Auckland during the weekend. Matt Ohlsson from Johnsonville and Kieran Clay from Churton Park were part of an eightmember team who qualified for the Nationals after winning the central region regatta two weeks ago. Both attend the TS Taupo Unit in Mana, and are chuffed that it is now ranked the top unit in the country. “I thought we had a pretty good chance of winning,” Kieran says. “We started doing quite well and

we won.” As well as the overall winner, the team were first in sailing, shooting, drills and seamanship, and came second in three other categories. However, they have yet to get the national trophy as the defending champions, who won the southern region again this year, had the trophy but did not bother to defend it. “I don’t know why,” Matt says. “They didn’t show up so we did it without them.” After winning, the team was temporarily presented with the Northern Regional Cup in lieu of the national cup, which they will receive soon. During the regional competition,

held in the Hutt Valley, TS Taupo won five events and as trophies are presented for each event at regionals, collected five trophies. To defend the national title, the TS Taupo unit will have to head off the other four units in next year’s regional competition. The success caps off a good 12 months for the unit who last year where named most efficient regional Sea Cadet unit. “It’s been a pretty good year – and hopefully we’ll get there next year too,” Matt says. TS Taupo Sea Cadets are recruiting now. If you are 13-15 years of age check out www.tstaupo. net.nz, or visit Tuesdays between 7-9pm at Ngatitoa Domain, Mana.

Huntleigh Home gives back It was pink ribbons galore at Enliven’s Huntleigh Home in Karori on Sunday afternoon, as the home held an afternoon tea to raise money for the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation. Huntleigh Home Manager, Suzanne Simpson says that the residents wanted to do their bit to raise money for a cause that is close to many people’s hearts. The residents wanted to do something to give back to the community,” says Suzanne. Residents from the home and adjoining Huntleigh Retirement Apartments along

with friends and family attended the event, making a gold coin donation to enjoy the pink treats. “About sixty people joined us for the event, and everyone got on board by wearing pink accessories.” Suzanne explains that continuing with meaningful activities, having a purpose and giving back to the community are all part of the Eden Philosophy, an elderdirected philosophy of care which is embraced by all Enliven rest homes across Wellington. Huntleigh Home will

be continuing with their fundraising efforts later this year, when they hold a blue themed event to raise money for the New Zealand Prostate Cancer Foundation.

HISTORICAL: A picture of the original assembly hall in the 1940s before additional add ons.

Developments at Onslow Community Church By Laura Kavanagh Exciting new developments are underway at Onslow Community Church in Ngaio. The original building itself located on Ngatoto Street is getting a revamp, while a new building is being constructed on the land next door. Grace Kindergarten, which adjoins the church, will also have a larger outdoor area for the children to play in. The developments are to cost about $500,000. The church has raised $150,000 themselves, and the Stewards Trust has gifted $50,000, while

loaning $350,000. Sym Gardiner of Onslow Community Church says the church has been mulling over the redevelopments for several years. “We are really excited because we have been working so hard towards it. “It is principally about using the space more practically, but the building needs to be refreshed because it is getting old and tired.” The original core of the building estimated to have been built around the 1940s. The new additional building is being built on land that used to house a set of flats. The Church bought the flats 20

years ago and recently paid off the mortgage. Sym says it will be all hands on deck with painting and any other renovations the church can do themselves. The additional building is expected to be finished later this year. Currently the church houses a number of activities besides its own church services, which include youth groups and the Rock Institute. “Everyone is a little bit squashed at the moment, but it will be worth it when we have this new, great facility,” Sym says.

readers have their say... Find out the WORD on the Street.

Question: Do you feel safe in your local community?

Marieka Schrader, Johnsonville

Neil Burn, Whitby

Sandeep Gupta, Johnsonville

Linda Zhen, Johnsonville

Baden Roper, Newlands

“I feel safe. There are systems in place.”

“I live in a retirement village so I do feel safe.”

“I don’t know. People seem okay.”

“Yeah, it’s alright. I think it is okay.”

“Course I do. I don’t worry about it.”


Bayleigh King-Turner, Johnsonville “Yes and no. I felt things were safer when I was a child. My children’s generation seems more dangerous.”

Something to be proud of Dear Ed, Looking forward to the election, we have a National-led Government that will deliver 4% growth over coming years and has seen 83,000 jobs created over the past 12 months. The manufacturing sector has expanded over the past consecutive 19 months and activity is at the highest level since 2006. In the recovery from the worst recession in decades we stood alongside the people of Christchurch - committing over $15 billion

to the rebuild of the city - and shielded those on benefits across New Zealand from cuts faced in other countries. In this past week we have seen a Budget that will bolster support for New Zealanders and their families. Something to be proud of? You bet it is! Regards, Brett Hudson National Party candidate in Ohariu

Stolen Policies Dear Ed, Murray Gray, (letters, May 21, 2014) you may want to check your facts on the Treasury website. While we may have made an infinitesimal surplus in our operating budget, our net debt has ballooned from just under 10billion in 2008 to over 60 billion in 2014. Free Doctor's visits for all children under 13 comes into effect in June next year and would be implemented by Labour anyway as Grant

Robertson has said in a radio interview. Another stolen policy is Paid Parental Leave, which was only increased by 4 weeks, this is after Bill English threatened to veto Sue Moroney's PPL bill which calls for 26 weeks leave. This budget is a sign of a desperate government. You may also want to exercise restraint in emotive personal attacks as well. Catherine Bindon Woodridge

40 Hour Famine event By Laura Kavanagh Two commendable students from Onslow College have worked hard over the weekend to raise awareness about the troubles in Malawi for this year’s World Vision 40 Hour Famine. Annabelle Wride and Brittany Young organised a special event last Saturday called 40 Challenges in 4 Hours, which included fun challenges to raise money and awareness for Malawi. The terrible weather affected the turnout numbers, but those who came got to have fun in a variety of games including, sponging,

slum building, and sack racing. The girls also spent the weekend in famine mode, with Brittany giving up food and Annabelle giving up shoes and conventional utensils. “We also have friends who are doingGUTHRIE no talkCUSTOMER: BOWRON THORNDON PROOF TIME 24/09/2012 9:18:54 a.m. ing and one doing no furniture,” REP ID:Brittany C85 says.

New headquarters PAINT, WALLPAPER, CURTAINS ONLY in Johnsonville COLOUR, DESIGN, TEXTURE By Laura Kavanagh A national office for the Aotearoa New Zealand Association Supervised Contact Services Inc was opened last week in Johnsonville. Ohariu MP Peter Dunne cut the official ribbon for the special opening of the new premises located on Broderick Road. Deputy Mayor Justin Lester also attended the opening, chatting to those involved with the organisation. The Aotearoa New Zealand Association Supervised Contact Services Inc., is the Professional Association Providers of Children’s Contact Services. A Children’s Supervised Contact Service provides a safe, controlled environment, where children requiring contact with significant people in their life can spend time together in a safe manner. Janis Sneddon says research

shows children, who have professional supervised contact to help to address relationship problems enjoy better relationships, are less likely to get into trouble or go to prison, are less likely to have mental health issues, and improve their chances of growing up to become better parents themselves. “The executive committee has deep concern that given the level of reported cases of abuse, neglect or maltreatment for vulnerable children, our provider members are experiencing a decline in the number of referrals for Supervised Contact services.” Janis says as the representative group for their members, they believe there is a need for clear, robust and affordable options that work for the children and young people affected. “Prevention is a more cost effective solution and successful outcomes are reported.”

Local Visique provides gift of sight for more than 1000 Fijians More than 1,000 Fijians will receive basic eye care and specialised treatment from a group of volunteer New Zealand optometrists associated with the Voluntary Ophthalmic Services Overseas (VOSO), made possible by the support of local Karori optometry practice Visique Capital Eyes Optometrists. Most people would consider sight their most precious sense, but for many living in rural Fiji with limited access to eye care and an underresourced health system, vision is a luxury beyond their reach. Formed in the 1980s, VOSO provides free eye care to help prevent and reduce the risk of blindness among the people of the Pacific Islands. In recognition of the importance of the work done by VOSO, Visique CapitalEyes Optometrists, based in Karori has committed to supporting VOSO by making a donation for every eye examination undertaken at the practice between April 21 and May 31. Visique CapitalEyes Optometrists owner and local optometrist Kevin O'Connor says he is thrilled to support the work undertaken by VOSO. “The organisation’s work in Fiji and other Pacific Islands is so important. “Access to basic eye care is some-

thing that we as New Zealanders take for granted at times, and we hope the community of Karori will support this valuable and worthy initiative.” VOSO chairman Richard Johnson says with only a small number of optometrists and ophthalmologists working in Fiji, many locals don’t have access to eye care. “On the island of Vanua Levu there is only one ophthalmologist to service a population of around 220,000, which means many on the island go without the necessary eye care. VOSO has been sending teams

to Fiji since the 1980s and we have found that our services are needed now more than ever before. Due to rising numbers of patients with diabetes and difficulties accessing medications, more residents are experiencing eye health issues that remain unaddressed.” Donations for eye examinations undertaken at Visique CapitalEyes Optometrists and other Visique practices around the country will be used to send volunteer optometrists and ophthalmologists to Fiji in July. They will provide eye care services such as eye examinations, prescribing glasses and performing surgery.

Windmill Music’s Jannah Dennison visited the playgroup throughout the week with a host of instruments and music to both entertain and education the children. Based in Karori, Windmill music has been running children’s music classes for several years, with the goal of providing a musical experiences for parents and children. The children at Wadestown playgroup certainly enjoyed Jannah’s visit, and were interested in the different instruments she had to show them. The visit from Windmill Music

is just one of the special visits the playgroup has arranged this year, which also include a petting zoo. Wadestown Playgroup is a meeting and learning environment for both adults and children run by the parents. It is a great place for local parents to meet others with children of a similar age, share activities and discuss concerns. The Playgroup has a maximum of 30 children at a session and operates four morning sessions a week.  If you are interested in coming along to Wadestown Playgroup, contact Email: wadestownplaygroup@gmail.com Web: www.wadestownplaygroup.weebly.com.

FUN WITH MUSIC: Three-year-old Aden Winther had a great time singing along and using different instruments.

Creating their own futures Two enterprising graduates from Massey University’s College of Creative Arts have used their design idea to create their own business. Oliver Ward and Fraser Callaway, both graduating with a Bachelor of Design (with Honours) this week, developed a collaborative project Connection that focuses on the transition into work. It addresses the conundrum often faced by university graduates: 'Can’t get a job without experience, can’t get experience without a job'. Their design solution - an experience that connects one studio with one student for one week. This is not a traditional internship, which can have negative connotations for both employers and students. Co–nnection pushed the boundaries and approached the problem with a multidisciplinary mindset, blurring the lines between traditional design ‘disciplines’. They also ran co-design sessions that continually sought input from studios & students, documented

on video at co-nnection.co.nz. Fraser and Oliver continue to work with Massey University to make Co-nnection a reality, with plans to launch this initiative early next year. An unexpected hurdle encountered during the project was the limited desk space in studio workplaces. To overcome this Fraser and Oliver designed a flexible, foldable, portable cardboard desk to enable the experience – truly thinking outside the box! This unexpectedly received so much interest that it has since lead to the founding of their new business, Refold, which designs customised portable desks. Along side establishing Refold they have continued to work as part of SV Associates, a worldwide collective of designers, and have set up a design studio on Cuba Street in Wellington. Their focus is on the design of environments and current projects include the wayshowing for the new Massey Wellington Library.

Wadestown man’s work on show By Laura Kavanagh

EXHIBITION: Work by Wadestown artist and architect Michael Bennett will be displayed at the exhibition, including this piece of Jervois Quay. PHOTO SUPPLIED.

A local artist and architect from Wadestown will have work on show from this upcoming weekend. Michael Bennett will be featuring two watercolour pieces in an exhibition of paintings at Pataka Art + Museum from Thursday, May 29 to Sunday, June 15. Wa t e r c o l o u r N e w Zealand is hoping this exhibition will quash the generally held misconception watercolours

are pale, insipid works painted by genteel Victorian ladies. Works by Robin Kay, Ted Sherwen, Jacky Pearson, Alfred Memelink and Wendy Masters will also be exhibited. Michael has always had a love for art and design, having taken up a career as an architect. He star ted painting watercolours seriously in 2008 after going to monthly painting groups in Wellington. “It was an interest of

mine and I really enjoyed it.” Michael says he does not have a particular favourite object to paint, but he says he is strongest in buildings because of his architecture background. “I am more interested in the paint and how, rather than the subject.” He says watercolours can be difficult and challenging, because you cannot revise something you have done. “You just have to move

on and trust yourself, which suits my personality. “I like being accurate but I don’t like having to labour too much on something.” Wa t e r c o l o u r N e w Zealand hopes this exhibition will introduce the wonderful world of watercolour to a wider audience. At weekends, members will be demonstrating the art of watercolour painting in the museum’s Bottle Creek Gallery.

Quit Smoking Your Health Depends on It

Johnsonville Medical Centre Pharmacy Ltd

The dangers of smoking are well known and there is no doubt this awareness has led to a reduction in the numbers of people smoking. In fact, quitting is one of the best health measures you can make and there are immediate health benefits for people with smoking-related diseases. Tobacco smoking is a major cause of death and disability, especially amongst Maori whose rates of smoking are double that of European New Zealanders. Even passive smoking – inhaling second-hand smoke – is the cause of death for many people. Smoking-related costs are huge and affect government’s health budgets, not to mention your own spending choices. When you know that the deaths and disability are preventable, and when you think about how much money you spend on cigarettes, it makes absolute sense to want to stop smoking. “Quitting smoking is not easy though”, acknowledge Self Care pharmacists. “But if you have the motivation to quit, and you are determined to do

it, you can.” So what would be your motivator? Consider this; tobacco smoke is made up of over 4,000 chemicals, many of which are toxic and able to cause cancers, with nicotine being the most well-known chemical and most addictive. It causes the blood vessels in your body to narrow, making it harder for blood to flow around. This raises your blood pressure, strains your heart and results in health problems that can affect your enjoyment of life, now and later on. Carbon monoxide gas ‘starves’ your body of oxygen so that your heart has to work harder - adding extra strain. Never think it is too late to give up. Even if you have smoked for years, it is worth quitting. Even if you have tried many times before, give it another go. It can take many attempts to become completely smoke free, and this time you could be successful. And never think you have to do it alone. There are many individuals and organisations that can assist and encourage you. “We can help,” offer Self Care pharmacists, “by provid-

tract. Diseases of the lungs, especially asthma, are made worse by smoking, and smokers are at high risk of developing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) which causes permanent lung damage and eventually is fatal. Smoking increases the risk of developing cancers of the lung, throat and mouth, of blood clots that can lead to heart disease or stroke (blocked blood vessels in the brain and loss of brain function), and poor blood circulation that can lead to limb amputation. The advantages of staying smoke free are so many that once you have quit, you will never want to return to your old habits. Don’t forget to use all the resources that are available to you, including your local Self Care pharmacist, and ask us about our Quit Smoking Self Care fact card.

ing advice, and medicines such as nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), to help overcome your nicotine addiction. There are many forms of NRT, including patches, lozenges and gum. Using NRT can double the likelihood that a quit attempt will be successful, and with our support, or the support from other quit-smoking counsellors (eg at Quitline – phone 0800 778 778), this likelihood is increased. Through Quitline you may be eligible for a course of NRT at reduced prices. There are now also therapies that are available on prescription from your doctor which can help you with stopping smoking”. Some NRT products can be used to help people (those not quite ready to quit now) to reduce the number of cigarettes smoked before actually quitting. Talk to your Self Care pharmacist about this ‘cut-down-thenquit’ approach. There is no glamour in cigarette smoking, and nothing cool about what it does to the body. It can irritate the eyes, nose, throat and lower respiratory
