Abstract or Summary

The number of smokers in New Zealand has decreased, but there still are lots of people who smoke daily. The question is, how current smokers are going to form their smoking behaviour to face a smoke-free future. This research uses qualitative methods and interviews as a tool, because it needs deeper information from smokers. As a result, eight smokers have been interviewed as participants, and based on their answers, some interesting points were found. Smokers are not able to quit smoking by themselves, and they are expecting more help from the government. They are open to believable alternatives to smoking. Their recommendations for the government is they should be more active and provide certified alternatives to smokers. The businesses which sell tobacco products should follow the government to change their product mix. Over all, a new, certified alternative for smokers is expected by government and the smokers.
