Want to quit smoking? Have you tried before with little or no success?
If this sounds familiar you might like to take advantage of the offer of free nicotine replacement therapy and extra support to help you quit.
Tobacco Treatment Specialist, Maria Willis, from the Forbes Health Service will be instore at Flannery’s and Life Pharmacies during February and March to help people to quit smoking. Maria is a Nurse Practitioner who assists community members who have diabetes, respiratory and heart conditions.
Community members can make an appointment to see Maria at either pharmacy.
During the appointment smoking habits will be assessed and free nicotine replacement therapy will be offered. Maria will also be able to assess the patients concerns and provide helpful information and advice on how to quit smoking.
“It is also important to remember your GP, pharmacists and QuitLine can provide support to quit,” said Maria.
“Smoking is more addictive than heroin and cocaine so understandably it is not easy to quit,” said Maria. “However, quitting smoking is one of the most important things you can do for your health and it is never too late to quit, increase your life expectancy and improve your quality of life.”
“There is no safe level of smoking. Even the occasional cigarette is doing you harm.”
To book an appointment to begin your journey to quit smoking, call Flannery’s Pharmacy on 6852 1111 or Life Pharmacy on 6852 2001.
