Here's a great example of making the most of having to quarantine.
A 40 year smoking habit stubbed out in just 14 days.
Twenty Russian and Ukrainian seamen kicked the habit during their MIQ stint - thanks to the help of one Canterbury nurse.
Some 570 foreign mariners have made their way through Christchurch quarantine facilities since October.
Amber Rex, a nurse working in MIQ, started a smoking cessation programme with six mariners but more and more soon signed up.
