• Tobacco Cessation Support

    Individual Tobacco Cessation Support Highlights

    (Kinney High School, Prospect Community Day School)

    Students may elect to meet with Recovery Happens trained staff to prepare to quit using tobacco/ nicotine products. In a caring and supportive environment they learn ways to deal with triggers attributed to tobacco use, dealing with relapse and identifying that which motivates them to stay of course. Brief sessions (up to 4) are offered on campus, during school and range from 20-30 minutes in duration.  Community-based tobacco education resources and referrals will also be shared with students.

    Smoking or vaping weakens the lungs, worse COVID-19 infection can follow

     
    Smoking-or-Vaping-COVID-19
     Overall, smoking or vaping increases someone's risk for COVID-19 because:
    • The immune system is supressed making the lungs less ready to fight a COVID-19 infection (shown above)
    • The lungs produce more of the ACE2 receptor/protein, which acts as a "doorway" for the virus
    • Those who reported smoking and were hospitalized due to pneumonia from COVID-19 were less likely to recover 
    • The risk of transmitting the virus is greater since fingers are in contact with lips from holding the nicotine product
    • The risk of transmitting the virus is greater if sharing a nicotine product such as a water pipe or hookah
