The fact that smoking is harmful to one’s health and can cause lung diseases and cancer, among other illnesses, is undeniable. The damage of smoking, alcohol, and drugs has been proven long ago, but during the COVID-19 pandemic, the doctors have noticed that smokers are more prone to have complications during treatment and are more vulnerable in general. Scientists across the world claim that the danger presented by the coronavirus might encourage smoking people to consider and try quitting smoking in order to protect themselves and their loved ones from the dire consequences of this disease. Many smokers have tried giving up smoking over the years but they lack motivation and measures to aid them. Not to mention that the consequences of smoking are not noticeable right away as they usually occur in older age or after several years of smoking. The present situation is the perfect incentive to quit smoking and choose a healthier lifestyle.
The World Health Organization cautions that smoking people are in high-risk groups of contracting the novel coronavirus. When smoking, your mouth has direct contact with your fingers, which means that if you have not washed your hands just minutes before, you have a higher risk of breathing in the virus. In addition to the higher risk of infection, the lungs of smoking people lack proteins that help protect the lungs against any damage. The lungs cannot fight the virus without the proteins and thus the virus can more easily attach itself to the surface of the respiratory tract and start multiplying.
According to the most recent researches, the lungs of smoking people have an increased quantity of the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE-2), which serves as an entry point into the respiratory tract for the virus.
However, the journey of the virus does not end here. A person who has contracted the novel coronavirus is at risk of having more complications that make it difficult to get better. A study done in China revealed that even though women contracted the virus more often, the mortality of men was significantly higher. The results were based on the fact that men tended to be heavier smokers than women in China. This means that the immune system and respiratory tract of men were more susceptible to the virus. The studies show the same results for people smoking both regular and electronic cigarettes or water pipes (bongs). The bongs seem to actually increase the risk of infection as the device is shared by several people when smoking. We feel pressured by the mass media, the Government, and other people surrounding us, so let us not pressure ourselves as well as it will only induce stress and emotional fatigue. Instead, thinks of this as the perfect time to reflect and to prioritize your health and the wellness of your body.
Quitting smoking is a complex process that might take from several weeks to three months. The majority of people trying to give up smoking reduce the number of cigarettes they smoke per day gradually or quit smoking altogether at once. Sadly, their attempts usually end in them returning to their bad habits. Quitting smoking during the COVID-19 pandemic might be a bit more difficult because our emotional wellbeing is more vulnerable and we are more sensitive to the changes in our surroundings. However, we can try and curb our bad habits and maybe give up smoking forever to protect our loved ones and ourselves.

This means that we tend to smoke more when a person nearby smokes as well. Ask your friends and relatives to refrain from smoking near you and to never ask you to join them.

Replace your bad habit with something new. You will find it hardest to avoid your usual smoking habits on the first days after quitting smoking. Many smokers are used to having a smoke at certain times of the day, e.g., upon waking in the morning, after breakfast, before work… Avoid this habit by bringing more variety to your daily routine and replaces smoking with a new activity. For example, if you always smoke on your way to work, change your route and avoid additional stimuli.
