Quit This Stoptober!

Join the thousands quitting smoking with Camberley Pharmacy and Stoptober.

The team at Crewkerne Pharmacy are supporting this year’s Stoptober campaign which will be running throughout October. 

The annual campaign, which was launched in 2013 aims to highlight the benefits of giving up smoking, by encouraging smokers to stop smoking for 28 days.  Research shows that if you can stop smoking for 28 days you’re 5 times more likely to stop for good.

Andy McKee, Manager at Crewkerne Pharmacy, said, “We all know the benefits of giving up smoking but we also understand that quitting is a tough thing to do.”

“A big part of my role as a community pharmacist is to support anyone who wants to stop smoking. The team here at Crewkerne Pharmacy are here to guide our patients and help them to find a solution that will work for them.”

“Quitting is the best thing you’ll ever do,” said Andy, “for your health and your family.  And remember that every cigarette you don’t smoke will save you money!”

“Call in and see us at Crewkerne Pharmacy.  We’re here from 7am to 10.30pm Monday to Saturday and 10am to 5pm on Sundays.”
