There are many health and financial benefits to quitting smoking, but quitting now means you can reduce the likelihood of complications from COVID-19, protect the health of others and reduce the burden on the NHS. Stopping smoking brings immediate health benefits particularly to the heart and lungs.
Get help and support to quit smoking at www.todayistheday.co.uk/. A Twitter account @QuitforCovid has also been set up to support people to stop smoking. Every day between 7.30pm and 8.30pm a quit clinic is hosted with a health expert to provide advice and support for people who’d like to quit.
