Well all of a sudden it's October, is it me or are the months getting shorter?!?!
To kick off the Winter months, there are a couple of national health promotions being pushed -
Most publicly pushed (mainly on the goggle box) is the Stoptober campaign. Now obviously you are all going to find being smoke-free for a month really easy and will be rid of your vice by November(???) No, we are realists and know this will be difficult for many; so when the will power is waining drop by one of our stores and get advice and help to make sure you can kick the habit. If you require a bit of extra help, then why not sign up to one of our NRT clinics; we can offer you 1-1 support and treatment plans (NRT patches and gums, etc) to help you personally acheive your goal.
As I've mentioned WInter is upon us, it may be worth noting some great deals we have in brach at the moment. To soften the financial "punch" (alcohol free of course) of Christmas, we have a selection of reduced price gifts , as well as selected designer perfumes at better than half price. Pop in a bag yourself a bargain (and have your blood pressure checked while you're at it!!)
Busy month this one!!
As always, stay healthy
Ian and the blog team.
