Quitting Tobacco against COVID19
Why should you quit smoking and how can you do it?
Smokers have a higher risk of getting coronavirus because they are constantly putting their hands to their lips.
And then, if they get coronavirus, they run a greater risk of getting a severe case because their lung function is impaired.
Quit today to reduce these risks and start living a healthier life.
Quick tips to curb your cravings:
Delay: Delay as long as you can before giving in to your urge.
Deep breathing: Take 10 deep breaths to relax yourself from within until the urge passes.
Drink water: Drinking water is a healthy alternative to sticking a cigarette in your mouth.
Do something else to distract yourself: Take a shower, read, go for a walk, listen to music!
