Lloyds in Easterhouse and Knightswood have been given Pharmacy Smokefree Awards by NHS bosses for helping people quit the habit and stay off cigarettes.
The scheme, which is on offer at every pharmacy in Glasgow, is the most popular way for people to stop smoking.
Lloyds in Shandwick Square, Easterhouse, had the highest number of quit attempts in the city last year, with 336 people giving up – that's almost one every day.
The branch in Alderman Road, Knightswood, had 326 customers attempting to give up, and 44% of those stayed off cigarettes for at least four weeks, the highest rate in the city.
One customer who used the service there was Robert Cassidy, 64, from Clydebank.
He managed to quit his 40 a day habit, which he had had for 40 years, after having heart problems.
He said: "The chemist's staff were excellent, especially Nadia Benchihbub. I feel better for giving up – and financially too.
"I had patches and they worked a treat. I have never looked back."
Every one of Glasgow's 316 pharmacies offers a 12-week programme to help people stop smoking.
Customers visit every week for support from a trained pharmacist and can get free nicotine replacement therapy, such as patches, lozenges or chewing gum. Carbon monoxide levels, which are high in smokers, are also checked.
A new diary initiative has been extended so people can record their progress and write a 'mission statement' on why they want to give up.
Certificates are handed out through the scheme.
Shona McGill, manager of Lloyds in Shandwick Square, said of the award: "We are all very pleased. It's a team effort and it is a recognition of everyone's hard work."
Heather Fraser, who manages the Knightswood branch, said: "We are overwhelmed and proud of the staff. We do try to encourage people using the service."
Liz Grant, leader of the Pharmacy Smoke Free Services for NHS Greater Glasgow And Clyde, said: "We are impressed by the numbers and the quit rate. We are also encouraged by the enthusiasm of the staff in delivering the services."
A total of 25,000 people have used the service since it started in 2003, making it the most popular way to stub out the habit.
Ms Grant said: "It's a huge service. About 83% of people come through the pharmacies' service, against about 18% for groups.
"It is less time commitment and you can come in any time. It's easier access."
THE Evening Times' Clear The Air campaign, run in conjunction with NHS Greater Glasgow And Clyde and NHS Lanarkshire aims to highlight the risks of Scotland's biggest killer and help you quit smoking for good.
Every day in Scotland 36 smokers die from horrific illnesses such as lung cancer, mouth cancer, strokes and heart disease. Then there is the harm caused to others by secondhand smoke, not to mention the spiralling cost.
