Dr Sarah Jarvis, a GP and media medic, said:
Smoking is still the primary cause of premature death. Every cigarette smoke damages the lungs and airways, making it harder to breathe. Smoking fills the lungs with toxins that injure the immune system and leave smoke more vulnerable to infections – which has been on our minds for 18 months.
Your doctor is urging every smoker to quit this October – it’s never too late to quit – stop smoking offers immediate health benefits, even for people with smoking related illness. There’s loads of support available including expertise in support from local stoppage smoking services, smoking cessation tools and digital media. You should not do this alone.
Leading UK health organizations, including the UK Asthma and British Lung Foundation, have joined in on the call to leave smokers in England this October by joining Stoptober.
Eluned Hughes, Head of Health Council for Asthma UK and British Lung Foundation, said:
Avoiding smoking is one of the best things you can do to improve overall health. Smoking severely damages the lungs, leading to a greater risk of developing conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
It is vital, now more than ever, to protect men’s lungs from discarding their deadly habit. No matter how long you have been a smoker, it’s never too late to give up, and if you already have a lung condition, quitting yourself is one of the best things you can do to help. When Stoptober marks its tenth anniversary, why not go the first step toward good?
They encourage smokers to join the thousands of people who spend their time smoking this October. For without the help of searching for ‘Stoptober’.
