I was asked by Carusele to participate in the #QuitForGood campaign, sponsored by Walgreens. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own.
I am so excited to welcome Walgreens as a new sponsor for Over 50 Feeling 40 and honored to begin today with critical information on the Walgreen’s QUIT FOR GOOD campaign, a campaign that is near to my heart. I have never smoked, but there is a good reason for that and a reason why I believe Walgreens efforts to help anyone quit smoking is so important. The journey can be difficult and overwhelming, so it is good to have a trusted brand like Walgreens to help out. This is a journey I wish my own father had chosen.
IN THE FAMILY
My father was rarely seen without a cigarette or cigar in his hand. He smoked non-stop. Our home, our clothing, our hair all smelled of smoke and it disgusted me…not to mention having to clean out his ash trays.
It eventually took his life before he really got to know his grandchildren and my youngest son never met him. Of course, I was like many during that time of life and I tried a cigarette, but after living with it for so long, I was never attracted to the vice. When I watched him withdraw from nicotine in the ICU after his first heart attack, I knew I would never, ever smoke.
I also believe I have lived with consequences of second-hand smoke all my life but am most saddened by the fact that he was not here for his grandchildren.
A PATH TO RECOVERY
There are so many reasons to rid your life of smoking…your health, your loved ones, and your joy can be robbed from you. Life is so much better when you can breathe deeply and not be addicted to nicotine. I hate to see families affected because one family member chooses to continue.
I am hoping this post will add some motivation to those of you who would like to quit. You must be motivated in order to go through this process which often requires a support group to help as you begin to use products such as Walgreens Smoking Cessation products. It is a personalized plan to quit on your own terms.
Walgreens smoking cessation products deliver controlled, therapeutic doses of nicotine to help with the difficult, physical withdrawal symptoms and to relieve the cravings.
You can save more with Walgreens products and they guarantee 100% satisfaction, as well, as recommendations from Walgreens respected pharmacists.
You can do this! Walgreens is here to help make it happen and they offer a variety of products to assist you on this journey to better health. You will find these in their many convenient locations:
- Walgreens Nicotine Gum, 2mg & 4mg Original
- Walgreens Nicotine Gum, 2mg & 4mg Cinnamon
- Walgreens Nicotine Gum, 2mg & 4mg Mint
- Walgreens Nicotine Gum, 4mg Fruit
- Walgreens Nicotine Lozenges, 2mg & 4mg Cinnamon
- Walgreens Nicotine Lozenges, 2mg & 4mg Cherry
- Walgreens Nicotine Lozenges, 2mg & 4mg Mint
- Walgreens Nicotine Mini-Lozenges, 2mg & 4mg Cherry Ice
- Walgreens Nicotine Mini-Lozenges, 2mg & 4mg Mint
- Walgreens Nicotine Sugar Free Lozenges, 2mg & 4mg Mint
Each piece of gum should last about 30 minutes and you can chew up to 20 pieces per day. The lozenges are similar to the gum, and also come in 2mg and 4mg strengths. They are good for individuals who may suffer from TMJ issues and need to avoid gum.
I wish my sons and my daughter had known their grandfather and been able to spend time with him. If you are struggling with quitting smoking, please consider stopping at Walgreens today and become dedicated to a plan to Quit For Good. I promise this the most important gift you can give yourself and your family.
KEEP SMILING, EVERYONE!
