Aiming to prevent passive smoking in children, support for smoking cessation for working and child-rearing generations
It is known that people who have lived with a smoker for many years have an increased risk of developing cancer, ischemic heart disease, stroke, and COPD, even if they do not smoke. In addition, if a pregnant woman smokes passively, there is a possibility of miscarriage or premature birth, and if a child smokes passively, they may develop SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), respiratory problems such as pneumonia and bronchial asthma, cavities, and short stature. The relationship between the two is attracting attention. Therefore, in order to further promote passive smoking countermeasures, Nagoya City has started offering an online smoking cessation program that is easy for working and child-rearing generations to engage in and has been proven to be effective.
Aiming to quit smoking with a six-month program that includes smoking cessation aids mailed to your home and completed online.
The online smoking cessation program provided by Linkage uses over-the-counter pharmaceutical smoking cessation aids (*) and provides six-month support for continued smoking cessation through regular online interviews from public health nurses and other medical professionals. In addition to delivering smoking cessation aids to your home, the program is all provided online, making it easy for people of the working generation and those raising children to take up the program.
*For those who are unable to take medication, such as pregnant women and breastfeeding women, we will provide support without medication.
