    You may have tried before to quit and failed but don’t let this put you off as research has shown that the more attempts you make, the more likely it is you will succeed with future efforts. So keep trying!

    You may be afraid of experiencing unpleasant side effects such as mood swings or gaining weight but there are many products available to help you manage nicotine withdrawal symptoms.

    Side effects eventually subside and are replaced with feelings of improved health and well-being.

    It is important to remain focussed on the many benefits of quitting including:

    • a longer life
    • better breathing
    • more energy
    • more cash
    • better sex
    • improved fertility
    • younger looking skin
    • whiter teeth
    • less stress

    And remember you don’t have to do it alone, ask in store for help with smoking cessation.
