Smoking Cessation Service - Brunshaw Pharmacy, Burnley

Trying to quit your smoking habit doesn’t need to be done alone. Help is important to keep you on track to ensure you achieve your goal of being smoke-free. As part of the NHS Public Health initiative, the smoking cessation service is a free support platform for those who are finally ready to quit.

 

Why smoking cessation support is important:

 

Those attempting to stop smoking may use self-control and determination to cut down. This sometimes alone may not be enough to stop altogether as cravings will slowly start to set in as nicotine withdrawal can be difficult to manage. Don’t give up! You can help us use that restraint and willpower to quit smoking.

 

If you are quitting smoking due to health concerns, then you may already know the risks that are associated with the chemicals and nicotine found inside them. Some of the more dangerous and life-threatening illness and diseases that can be caused by smoking includes:

  • Several cancers, notably lung cancer, oesophageal cancer and mouth cancer
  • Cardiovascular issues like heart disease and heart attacks
  • Increases in strokes
  • Damage to blood circulation
  • Impotence

If you are pregnant, then smoking can lead to:

  • Miscarriage
  • Stillbirth
  • Your baby being born underweight

Not only does smoking affect the individual, but second-hand smoke can also harm your family or friends. The likelihood of developing dangerous cancers and heart attacks increases by roughly 25% in those exposed to daily smoking inhalation. Children and teenagers are more susceptible to developing respiratory issues like asthma and meningitis if they are exposed daily.
