No Smoking Day - 10th March 2021
“Quitting smoking doesn’t have to be stressful”
This year 10th March 2021 is No Smoking Day. No Smoking Day is a national campaign that encourages the nation’s smokers to make a quit attempt on the second Wednesday of March each year. Ask our pharmacy team for advice and start your journey to a smoke free life. For more info visit: https://www.nhs.uk/better-health/quit-smoking/
It might not feel like a good time to quit smoking – but it is. Last year, during lockdown, one million people quit. New research confirms that now those ex-smokers will be feeling happier and more positive than if they were still smoking.
We don’t often talk about the benefits of quitting to mental health, but just as it improves your physical health, stopping smoking also improves your sense of wellbeing. Withdr
