Make a PACT to Stop Smoking

Are you a smoker and want to quit?  Even more beneficial than losing 20 pounds of weight, quitting smoking is the #1 thing you can do to improve your health.   But, as millions of Canadians know, quitting smoking is very difficult.  On average, it take most smokers 6 – 7 times quitting to be successful.

Did you know that your pharmacist can help?  We are professionally trained in smoking cessation techniques, with studies showing we can improve your success rate by 50%.  Even better, this service is free to all patients – all you have to do is ask!

I am a member of PACT (Partnership to Assist with Cessation of Tobacco) developed by the Pharmacy Association of Saskatchewan with the goal of training Saskatchewan pharmacists to assist their tobacco using patients to quit.  I have been helping patients quit for over 10 years and it’s their success that makes our pharmacy practice great.
