A Glengormley businessman has successfully managed to quit smoking, thanks to the help and support of his local pharmacy.

Sudhir Tandon, owner of Speedy Cleaners on the Antrim Road, kicked the habit with the help of the Stop Smoking service provided by staff at Hannon’s Pharmacy in Glengormley.

“This was a fantastic service and the level of support I received was incredible,” Sudhir commented. “I would recommend this service to anyone who is thinking about quitting smoking.”

To mark No Smoking Day, Hannon’s Pharmacy - part of the MediCare Pharmacy Group - presented Mr Tandon with a certificate to mark the milestone of him being three months ‘smoke free’.

“Your local pharmacy is a good first contact point for advice about stopping smoking,” a spokesperson for Hannon’s explained. “While most people will go first to their pharmacy for medicines advice, many don’t know about the level of assistance that can be provided through the Stop Smoking service. They’re able to assess your smoking habits, help with deciding on a suitable Nicotine Replacement Therapy regime and provide you with treatment free of charge, while having regular discussions with you about your progress and what further assistance we can give you in your attempt to stop smoking.”
