COVID-19 has also brought home to the nation the importance of looking after our physical health and during this pandemic quitting smoking is one of the best things you can do. We know that smoking increases the risk of contracting respiratory infections and can lead to more severe symptoms from COVID-19. Smoking is also the cause of many health conditions such as heart disease, lung disease and cancer. So far throughout this pandemic we have seen over a million people quit smoking nationally and many more making attempts to quit. Stoptober is a great opportunity for you to take that first step to a healthy future.

Did you know…

While you may not notice how much tobacco smoke dulls your senses it usually becomes noticeable once you quit. Smoking may be the cause of numerous types of cancers, cardiovascular diseases and a myriad of other smoke related health risks, however very few smokers are aware of how much smoking significantly impairs both the sense of smell and taste.

Within days of stopping smoking your senses should start to return to normal.
