 #QuitForCovid

Thinking of quitting smoking? There has never been a better time to quit than NOW! Smoking can cause harm to the immune system, and can therefore leave smokers more vulnerable to infections. Smokers are at greater risk of: 

  • getting acute respiratory infections
  • infections lasting longer 
  • infections being more serious than for someone who does not smoke

Healthy Cornwall can help you to quit smoking - visit the Healthy Cornwall website to find out more information and to access advice and support.
