Smokers encouraged to #QuitforCovid

Never been a more important time to stop smoking

Smokers in the Bradford district are being urged to #QuitforCovid to reduce their serious risks from coronavirus (Covid-19).

As well as reducing the risks from coronavirus, quitting smoking quickly improves circulation and breathing which reduces the risks of heart attack and stroke at a time when the NHS is coming under strain.

In the longer term quitting is also linked to reduced depression, anxiety, and stress and improved positive mood and quality of life.
