Smoking Cessation

Are you ready to quit smoking & why should you stop smoking?
Probably the most important reason is that cigarette smoke contains thousands of chemicals of which over 40 are known to cause various types of life threatening cancer.

How can you stop smoking?
There are many ways to give up smoking including will power, therapy books and replacement cigarettes. One of the most common and successful is Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT). These are products which will help reduce your craving for cigarettes. Our pharmacist will give you advice on the range of NRT products available and will put you on the NRT programme phase 1. This phase usually takes about 6 weeks and over this time you should cut the number of cigarettes you smoke by half. If you smoke 16 cigarettes you should aim to replace 8 a day with an NRT or through the use of willpower.
Phases 2, 3 & 4 can take up to 12 months. For more information on these phases please contact us and speak to our Pharmacist.

What happens to you after you give up?
Once you have successfully given up smoking your body will start to show signs that you are becoming healthier. Your blood pressure will improve, breathing will improve, sense of smell and taste will improve and the risk of a heart attack may fall to half that of a smoker.

Start an NRT programme please contact us and speak to our pharmacist who will make an appointment at our Juba store.
