One of the best things that you can do for yourself in 2021 is to stop smoking. Avail of the new Quit Smoking West Service and this can become a reality. With the help of a stop smoking advisor you will get free expert support throughout your journey to become an ex-smoker as well as advice on stop smoking medications that help relieve withdrawal symptoms. This new service is provided by the HSE health promotion and improvement team.
Just like flu, coronavirus infection may be more severe in people who smoke. The good news is that quitting smoking helps build up your natural resistance to all types of infections including coronavirus. Take the 28 day stop smoking challenge this January and reduce your risk of coronavirus and other infections. If you stop smoking for 28 days, you are five times more likely to quit for good.
You do not have to do it alone. Availing of the support of a HSE stop smoking advisor and using stop smoking medications will give you the best possible chance to quit for good.

You will be matched with a stop smoking advisor in your area that can support you by telephone, or online by smartphone or computer, whichever suits you best.
