Don't Give Up on Giving Up; Finding It Hard to Trash the Ash? the North Wales Smoking Cessation Service Can Help You Kick the Habit


THE health risks caused by smoking are impossible to ignore.

High blood pressure, heart attacks, lung disease, emphysema - need we go on?

But kicking the habit can be extremely difficult without the right help and support.

It's a well-researched fact that many smokers try up to six or seven times to quit before they succeed.

"I offer advice on how to stop, discuss different products which can help combat nicotine addiction and tell them what to expect as they wean themselves off the nicotine."

There are lots of products on the market which can help you stop smoking, for example nicotine replacement therapy which comes in the form of patches, gum, tablets, lozenges or inhalators.

The drug Zyban can be prescribed by doctors to aid quitting, but it's also helpful to be able to talk through the whole process with someone who knows what you're going through. …
