A recent age-adjusted analysis published in medrxiv.org, found that the only risk factors of lower Ab titres, (the titres that help protect from the COVID-19 virus) were being male and smoking cigarettes. The study also found that titres were significantly lower in current smokers than in ex-smokers.

Now that over 60% of the population has been fully vaccinated, it might be time to take a look at lifestyle choices. We all know the drill, DON’T SMOKE! That said, if you have ever been a smoker you also know how difficult it can be to stop the addiction. Each of us has a vice or two, no question, however, if it can interfere with your body’s ability to fight the COVID-19 virus, that may just be enough motivation to “start stopping”!

There are many different smoking cessation programs, devices, medications, etc. available, many are even covered by insurance. Isn’t it worth a try? Spend some time thinking about the impact this habit has on your life and those around you. Take a look at options to assist in smoking cessation, maybe hypnosis would work for you! Whatever options you try, don’t stop trying! Stay well, stay informed, and stay tuned!
