In these unprecedented times due to COVID-19 we are listening to the latest advice from the government and their health specialists. We are continuing to work in these challenging times so that we can serve the needs of our customers.
Please note that we are receiving a particularly high volume of orders, enquiries, telephone calls and emails. With a depleted team we are working exceptionally hard to process orders and respond to customer enquiries. Unfortunately it is currently taking longer to process and dispatch orders than usual, so please allow up to 5 working days for shipment.
Please also note that postal services and couriers are experiencing similar challenges so please allow longer delivery times than usual. We would be grateful if you can be patient and not contact us regarding your order before these times are up so we can reduce the pressure on our customer service team.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Keep well and stay safe.
Going smoke-free can be a strange feeling. Not being able to smoke can create lower the mood. Similarly, emotions and feelings will need to be handled in a different way, rather then resorting to smoking to help yourself feel better/cope.
To keep focused and motivated, manage your quitting time in stages or "bite-sized" chunks. Cut down the amount you smoke by half within a set amount of time of your choice. Then halve you intake again and again, until you can stop altogether. This is a steady method to use, allowing you to manage your time and keep you in control of your intake.
So, FOR EXAMPLE; If you smoke 20 a day, try to cut down to 10 a day within 6 weeks. Once you are successfully smoking a maximum of just 10 a day, you have the choice; if you are ready, halve you intake again to 5 per day within another 6 weeks OR you can pause at 10 a day for as long as you need. Staying cut down is still better then the amount you were smoking originally.
Take a look at your smoking pattern. This may give you a realistic idea of how long it could take to cut down or quit:
|Nicotine Replacement to dispel cravings||Products to manage cravings||Cigarette Replacement|
|Very Heavy & Heavy Smokers (20 + per day)||
|Average Smoker (10-20 per day)||
|Light Smoker (0-10 per day)||
Chewing nicotine gum gives you something to do when you would normally have a cigarette, helping to take you mind off smoking.
Nicotine patches are a discreet way to ensure your body gets a steady dose of nictone through the day. They come in varying strengths.
Like gum, nicotine lozenges and tablets give you an action to perform in place of smoking a cigarette.
A nicotine spray delivers a direct, metered dose when required. We have both nasal sprays and mouth sprays.
Help and advice on coping with the cravings and withdrawal symptoms that come with stopping smoking. Overcoming them is easier when you know what to expect.
