Helping you quit
WOOLGOOLGA Dispensing Pharmacy has been running a quit smoking awareness campaign throughout June.
Staff at the pharmacy are highlighting the services available to people who wish to quit smoking, and are able to provide support, in-depth information on treatment options, and they can tailor treatment plans to individual needs.
Smoking is the leading preventable cause of death and disease in Australia.
Tobacco not only reduces the life expectancy of users, but diminishes their quality of life as well.
Quitting smoking can be one of the most difficult but also rewarding things a person can do, and it can take a number of attempts to quit for good.
Getting the right advice and support is important in making sure your attempt to quit is a successful one.
There are many products and therapies available to help you succeed in your quitting journey, such as nicotine replacement products and prescription medications.
Research has shown that when used properly, these medications can double your chances of quitting successfully.
When you quit smoking you'll feel the benefits immediately as your body begins to repair itself.
For more information on their quit smoking services, phone the pharmacy on 6654 7300.
