The Help You Need to Quit Smoking
I was asked by Carusele to participate in the #WalgreensQuitForGood campaign, sponsored by Walgreens and Perrigo. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own.
New Year’s resolutions – you either love them or hate them. Personally, I’m a fan. I think the new year is a great time to remind myself that I can make changes in my life. But I also know that sometimes when I choose something big as a resolution, I get a little overwhelmed and am less likely to see it through. For me, rather than make a big resolution like “get organized” it’s better to make a specific, actionable, measurable resolution like “Clean living room bookshelf and closet.” Taking one specific action often leads to me accomplishing my goal.
One of the most common New Year’s resolutions is to quit smoking.
I don’t smoke today, but I did in my twenties and it was REALLY hard to quit. I also have many loved ones who have struggled with this addiction. It’s heartbreaking to see people want to make a positive change for their health and their family, and not be able to do it. I’ve talked to a lot of people who have successfully quit smoking and it turns out that for them as well, having an actionable, measurable plan for quitting is helpful.
That’s why it’s so great that The Walgreens team can help you build a personalized plan to quit on your terms. Walgreens has a ton of Smoking Cessation products that deliver controlled, therapeutic doses of nicotine to help with difficult, physical withdrawal symptoms & relieve cravings.
Some of their products include:
- Each piece of gum should last about 30 minutes, and you can chew up to 20 pieces per day. Walgreens Nicotine Gum is good for people who like to keep their mouths busy.
- Similar to Walgreens Nicotine Gum, Walgreens Lozenge also comes in 2mg and 4mg strengths. This is a good choice for people who may avoid gum due to TMJ problems.
Walgreens products are an affordable option for quitting. They are less expensive than the brand name versions and there are currently two special offers:
- If you’re a MyWalgreens member, then on your 4th Nicotine Mini Lozenge or Coated Nicotine Gum purchase, save $10 on your next purchase of one Nicotine Mini Lozenge or Coated Nicotine Gum; through 2/28.
- There’s also a Buy one Get One 50% offer 12/27/20 – 2/27/21
