Fight against smoking continues with Nicorette

Over the years, the Philippine government in partnership with private organizations have been working together to reduce tobacco use through awareness and education programs.

According to the Philippine Statistics Authority, twenty eight percent (28%) or 17.3 million Filipinos are smokers. Today, the Philippines still has one of the highest per capita levels of tobacco consumption among the ASEAN countries, and this poses a major public health problem in the country.

Over the years, the Philippine government in partnership with private organizations have been working together to reduce tobacco use through awareness and education programs.

Ending the Habit

At Johnson & Johnson Philippines, we walk the talk when it comes to enforcing good, healthy habits, in order to quit smoking. Through a series of posters strategically displayed around the J&J Philippines campus, employees are reminded how Nicorette can help them break free from smoking. Nicorette is Nicotine Polacrilex, a type of nicotine replacement therapy that can help quitters reduce their cravings in as fast as 15 minutes. Quit smoking for a week with the help of Nicorette and be 9x more likely to quit for good.

“As part of our J&J credo, it is our responsibility to give our employees a healthier and safer environment in the office and at home. This is just one of our initiatives in making sure we help put a stop to smoking. Our work does not just start and end with promoting Nicorette to our consumers, but we would also like our employees to be reminded of the threats of smoking”, says Patricia Rodriguez, brand manager for self-care, Johnson & Johnson Philippines.

Quit Smoking with Nicorette

Apart from activities within the Johnson & Johnson Philippines campus, we are also making strides in advancing our goal in reducing tobacco usage in the country. Last year, in celebration of World No Tobacco Day, Johnson & Johnson Philippines introduced Nicorette to encourage more Filipino smokers to #JoinTheQuitters. Nicorette held an online event anchored on the World Health Organization’s campaign “Commit to Quit” to motivate Filipinos to permanently quit for good.  The event was streamed through Facebook live and was attended by over 700 people nationwide. Some participants were “quitters” who shared their quitting journeys and smokers who pledged to a healthier lifestyle.

  • Since then, Nicorette has worked non-stop in advocating to end smoking in the Philippines. We continued to raise awareness of the difficulties in quitting smoking with the help of our ‘quit ambassadors’. This year, in commemoration of No Smoking Month, Nicorette invited the media to participate in a roundtable discussion on the hazards of smoking. The event was attended by John Matthew Uy, a Nicorette user and successful quitter, and pulmonologist Dr. Leni Fernandez ho enlightened guests about the threats of smoking.  Apart from that, we also sought the help of “quitters” to share their quitting journey online. Our ambassadors talked about the challenges of quitting, the importance of having a strong support system in their journey and having an effective and trusted product like Nicorette that can help them through withdrawals and in stopping their cravings.

The Answer to Quit Smoking for Good

There is no excuse in being unable to quit smoking now that Nicorette is available in leading supermarkets and drugstores nationwide. Nicorette is available in your nearest drugstores like Mercury Drug, Watsons, Southstar Drug, and more, and is also available on both Shopee and Lazada for your convenience.

Get special deals and promos to finally break that habit by purchasing Nicorette on official Johnson & Johnson Philippines accounts, both on Shopee and Lazada.

Imagine a quiet morning with a gentle breeze while sipping a cup of coffee. A panoramic view of lush green surroundings greets you as you wait for the sunrise. It’s the kind of life that welcomes the future occupants of the recently unveiled 1-bedroom, east-facing units at Two Botanika Nature Residences.

Two Botanika offers a “lanai” living experience with deep balconies, inspired by a design feature seen in tropical countries, allowing better airflow and spacious living. It promises world-class luxury living spaces with 70% of the whole development dedicated to open spaces. Families and individuals also get convenient access to business and lifestyle hubs in the south for work and leisure. But there’s more that residents can look forward to.

In celebration of its unveiling, an exclusive event was held at the Filigree Showsuites, styled by celebrity event stylist Robert Blancaflor, with performances by the Manila Philharmonic Orchestra. 

“We are happy to announce through this event that the east-facing 1-bedroom units at Two Botanika are now open. Mornings will be something to look forward to because the first thing residents would see are the sunrise and a beautiful view — the life they deserve,” said Daphne Sanchez, head of Filigree, the brand portfolio behind the residential masterpieces in Metro Manila and Metro Clark.

Redefining luxury with space

In charge of Two Botanika’s efficient unit space planning is New York-trained, Tina Periquet from Periquet Galicia Inc. To further upscale the lifestyle of future residents, the firm meticulously designed every space so its use can be maximized. The units are designed in a curved, well-defined shape to make residents feel safe in their sanctuary. Outside their home, the surrounding is peaceful and safe, giving residents the freedom to wander around without worries. 

Tina Periquet shared, “My ultimate task is to curate experiences in the home. So, [I designed Two Botanika in a way that] there is a nice sense of community and it’s really very much in keeping with the overall idea of being in a healthful place where you can just relax and not feel confined the way you normally would in a condo tower. There is a sense of expansiveness, openness, actual ventilation, and daylight.”

The newly-opened 1-bedroom units are 70–76 sq m in size, much bigger than the average 35–55 sq m 1-bedroom units from other properties. These sizeable abodes of Two Botanika allow residents to move around comfortably in a large space.

Experience a life of luxury in your own sanctuary

Beyond the spacious unit, residents can experience convenience and an elevated lifestyle with the amenities offered. There’s no need to go out of town for a quick dip in a swimming pool surrounded by nature as Two Botanika has tiered swimming pools and a sunbathing deck residents can use. Amenities can be found across all three towers, accessible to all residents. Residents can enjoy all of these while fostering a sense of community with the other residents. Parents can have fun and create core memories with their kids in the indoor play area and game room.

Residents can live an active lifestyle without leaving the property with its outdoor play area and a fully-fitted gym. If they want to unwind, residents can enjoy the peace and quiet while admiring the scenic view from the Line Garden, or strike up a conversation with others in the sky lounge, greenhouse, or lawn space.

For residents looking to socialize and are already members of The Palms Country Club — an accredited member club of the prestigious International Associate Clubs, Two Botanika has a gate exclusive to its residents who are members of the club, a few steps away from their unit. Residents who are members can experience an elevated lifestyle in the club. They can dine, unwind, relax, or celebrate special moments with their loved ones at The Palms Country Club.

Every waking moment opens a plethora of exciting possibilities for Two Botanika residents. Two Botanika offers a huge living space for them to comfortably lounge in and amenities where they can unwind and create more precious memories whether alone or with their loved ones.
