Smoking Cessation Service - Imaan Pharmacy, Harehills

Trying to quit your smoking habit doesn’t need to be done alone. Help is important to keep you on track to ensure you achieve your goal of being smoke-free. As part of the NHS Public Health initiative, the smoking cessation service is a free support platform for those who are finally ready to quit.

 

Why smoking cessation support is important:

 

Those attempting to stop smoking may use self-control and determination to cut down. This sometimes alone may not be enough to stop altogether as cravings will slowly start to set in as nicotine withdrawal can be difficult to manage. Don’t give up! You can help us use that restraint and willpower to quit smoking.

 

If you are quitting smoking due to health concerns, then you may already know the risks that are associated with the chemicals and nicotine found inside them. Some of the more dangerous and life-threatening illness and diseases that can be caused by smoking includes:

  • Several cancers, notably lung cancer, oesophageal cancer and mouth cancer
  • Cardiovascular issues like heart disease and heart attacks
  • Increases in strokes
  • Damage to blood circulation
  • Impotence

If you are pregnant, then smoking can lead to:

  • Miscarriage
  • Stillbirth
  • Your baby being born underweight

Not only does smoking affect the individual, but second-hand smoke can also harm your family or friends. The likelihood of developing dangerous cancers and heart attacks increases by roughly 25% in those exposed to daily smoking inhalation. Children and teenagers are more susceptible to developing respiratory issues like asthma and meningitis if they are exposed daily.

I would like to thank all staff at Imaan Pharmacy for their excellent service when my husband and I went for our covid boosters today. Warm, efficient welcome; comfortable, seated wait (we were a bit early); considerate and efficient administration of vaccine for us both. Well done - I wish you were nearer to our home!

I came in as a first year pharmacy student, looking for work experience, however, having had a few hours of previous experience, at a different pharmacy, I wasn’t expecting to enjoy my time at Imaan pharmacy, Leeds, but as soon as the first day started, I felt positive energy from all the staff (the type of energy I would not have expected from a pharmacy). I’d highly recommend, pharmacy students, looking for experience to get experience here, as it’s not too busy so you won’t feel pressured when completing tasks. Both pharmacists that work here, are helpful and give great advice on career paths as a pharmacist, prereg and what to expect in the up coming years at university. The dispenser that I shadowed, was great at her job and gave me many opportunities to help around the pharmacy and gain experience in many areas of pharmacy. The counter assistant is one of the nicest people you will ever meet and will always ask you if you want a cup of tea. I’m grateful for the experience they gave but also for how patient they were with me, even when I made mistakes.
