Why this PGD

There are many NHS programs to help people give up smoking and many provide Champix® to help smokers kick the habit. However, each individual is limited to one attempt and as is the case with smoking, many people either fail to give up or simply start smoking again after weeks or months of giving up. Often they were unable to give up in that time due to some stressful event such as a family bereavement, but unfortunately these people who found that Champix® helped are ineligible for another course. So although these NHS programs are very effective at introducing many people to Champix® , for those who do not succeed there is no easy or cheap way to get a prescription for Champix® . This Stop Smoking PGD can offer a cheap and secure source of Champix® for the many UK smokers wishing to give up.
