Quit for COVID

Posted by on April 20, 2020 in Home Page | 0 comments

Smoking can lead to a weaker immune system, therefore putting people at greater risk of developing a severe complication from the COVID-19 virus. Those around them exposed to second hand smoke, including children, are also at an increased risk. Stopping smoking not only has health benefits for individuals and those around them, but also helps alleviate pressure on our NHS service. In Dudley, there are lots of free stop smoking services available including, ‘over the phone’ appointments with Wellness coaches, Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) products through the post, and the ‘Quit With Bella’ app – the Stop Smoking robo-coach. To access the local services, residents can call the Let’s Get Healthy Dudley team on 01384 732402 or visit: https://lets-get.com/healthy-lifestyles/stop-smoking/ Nationally, the #QuitForCovid campaign encourages smokers to quit together sharing their stories online, the website also offers information and support: www.todayistheday.co.uk
