      More than half a million people in the UK say they have tried to stop smoking because of COVID-19. It is more important now than ever to look after our health.

      If you smoke, quitting is one of the best ways to protect yourself and others, and reduce the need to use the NHS. By continuing to smoke you are putting yourself at greater risk of developing more severe illness and needing longer to recover, if you contract the Covid-19 virus. Smoking damages the lungs and weakens the immune system, but this can improve after you’ve quit. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been smoking, stopping smoking now will not only be good for your long term health, but you will see immediate health benefits.
