Are you a smoker or is someone you love a smoker who is thinking of quitting smoking? Miller’s pharmacy is here to help. We have a number of nicotine replacement treatments (NRT) available. Our pharmacist Niamh would be happy to help you pick a suitable product that suits your lifestyle leading to a healthier and happier you!
We all know that it is very difficult to stop smoking; this is because nicotine is a very powerful addictive agent. We also know that quitting has enormous benefits to your health.
Some of the benefits to giving up smoking are:
A reduced risk of cancers, in particular, lung and throat cancer.
Reduction in the risk of developing serious lung conditions such as bronchitis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Smokers are also twice as likely of developing heart attacks so quitting smoking greatly reduces this risk.
Women who are smokers are more likely to miscarry and have low birth weight babies, not smoking is therefore much better for your unborn baby.
Stopping smoking will add years onto your life!
There are so many advantages to quitting, not least the cost but you will breathe better, smell better, taste food better and you won’t have to go outside alone in the cold when you are out socialising!
NRT reduces withdrawal symptoms that lead those who quit smoking to start smoking again.
Call into Miller’s pharmacy, remember its never to late to quit!
