Brian Quits with Support from Yorkshire Smokefree Wakefield
Brian decided to stop smoking with Yorkshire Smokfree after recently being diagnosed with COPD. Doctors warned that if he continued to smoke he would need to use oxygen on a regular basis. It was the wake-up call he needed and he decided that cigarettes should no longer be a part of his life.
When we first met his CO reading was 47ppm and he struggled to walk upstairs without taking short breaks. Brian attended the quit clinic on a weekly basis and has now been smoke-free for over 4 weeks with a CO reading of 2ppm.
Brian is using Champix to help him stop smoking and he tells us that even after just 4 weeks he can’t believe how much better he feels and can now manage the stairs without stopping half way up!
Like many long term smokers Brian attended the clinic thinking he would never be able to quit, but with the support of Yorkshire Smokefree he feels his quality of life has improved massively. In fact he wishes he stopped smoking years ago!
We congratulate Brian on his success so far and our Wakefield team are confident that he has kicked the habit for good. Brian knows that if ever he feels like his determination is wavering we are here to support him, either in person or at the end of the telephone.
