COVID-19: Smoking cessation support

If you are considering quitting, now is a good time to do so.

The reason for this:

  • Smoking damages your immune system and protects you less against infections such as coronavirus.
  • Smokers infected with the coronavirus are more prone to pneumonia than non-smokers.
  • Smoking around other people at home can increase their risk of coronavirus, among other things. Quitting smoking also protects the people around you.

The good news is that there is support to stop smoking.

There are a number of pharmacies along the North Tyneside that can help. Smoking cessation counselors can help you develop a specific smoking cessation plan. They can also arrange access to discounted or free medications to help you give up.

The good news is that even during this time, there is still support to stop smoking. Click here to find out where to turn for support to quit smoking
