With Spring fast approaching it is likely that those New Year’s resolutions will be falling by the wayside. If quitting smoking was top of the priority list but hasn’t gone as well as planned then all is not lost.
On February 29 – leap year day – smokers are being urged to ‘take the leap’ and prepare to quit smoking exactly two weeks before No Smoking Day (March 14), giving smokers another chance to take that leap towards a healthier lifestyle.
Did you know that people are four times more likely to quit with support compared to those who choose to go it alone.
Giving up isn’t easy but Lloydspharmacy can help by giving expert advice on the services and products that will work for you.
