THERE IS NO BETTER TIME TO QUIT – SMOKEFREELIFE SOMERSET IS HERE TO HELP
Smokers are being encouraged to quit as they are at higher risk of contracting the COVID-19 virus. Smoking increases the severity due to the damage caused to lungs, and the physical act of smoking itself – fingers to face etc – increases the risk, so there is no better time to quit. Smokefreelife Somerset is your local stop smoking service, providing FREE support to Somerset residents to become smoke free. Evidence shows that smokers are much more likely to quit if they get expert support.
