During the this trying time of Covid-19, it’s especially important to focus on your health. We can take small steps to do this by avoiding extraordinary claims from the news, and focusing on things that will in general make you a healthier person & happier person. Though this isn’t simple for people who are currently addicted to nicotine, quitting smoking is certainly something that will help you fare better against Corona Virus, and will also give you a better chance of recovery from almost every other illness. If you are a smoker, before looking for a miracle vaccine, please consider options that will help you quit. Not sure if quitting now will make a difference? Watch this video for some points about how quickly your body begins to recover.
