Support to stop smoking

COVID-19: Support to Stop Smoking

Many people will be considering giving up smoking. The good news is that there is still support available in North Tyneside to help people to stop smoking. 

This is an important time to give up smoking as:

  • Smoking harms your immune system, leaving you less protected against infections like coronavirus
  • Smokers infected with coronavirus are more likely than non-smokers to develop pneumonia
  • Smoking inside at home around other people could raise their risks from coronavirus, alongside the other harms it causes. So stopping smoking protects the people around you too.

There are a number of pharmacies across North Tyneside that can help. Trained stop smoking advisors can help you come up with a tailored plan to stop smoking by offering telephone support. They can also arrange access to discounted or free medications to help you to quit.
