2020 has been a difficult year for everyone and the lack of contact with friends, family, grandchildren and those we hold closest to us has proved a challenge like no other. People are spending more time at home and as a result some are returning to smking in the home. This doesn’t just impact on you but those you live with including your children, grandchildren, partners and pets – no one is exempt from the harms of second hand smoke regardless of where you smoke in the home

What can I do to make the first steps?

1.

Make a plan to quit smoking – Set a date, pop it in a calendar or tell someone you know will be a supportive advocate of your quit when the date is.

2.

Is there anything stopping you, if so can you resolve this?

3.

Think positive – you may have tried to quit before and it didn’t work, you may have tried multiple times and each time have succumbed to a craving. This doesn’t mean this time will be the same, it takes on average don’t base your new quit attempt on your last one.

4.
