We also provide a Smoking Cessation service. This is a professional service run by our Pharmacist. It involves private consultations with our pharmacist where you both work together to tailor a plan that best suits your needs. It will involve choosing a product that will suit your needs best and setting a quit date and dates to review your progression. This is all done in a way which supports you through the process and you are in control of your tailored plan.
The benefits of quitting smoking start straight away:
- After 20 minutes: Your blood pressure and pulse rate return to normal and your circulation improves.
- After 8 hours: Oxygen levels in your blood return to normal.
- After 24 hours: Carbon monoxide is cleared from your body.
- After 48 hours: Sense of taste and smell begin to improve.
- After 72 hours: Breathing becomes easier and energy levels begin to increase.
- After 1 year: Your risk of suffering a heart attack decreases by 50%.
- After 10 years: Your risk of lung cancer decreases to about half that of a smoker. Your risk of suffering a Heart Attack decreases to about the same as a person who has never smoked.
