Influenza and Smokers
Smokefree for life

People who smoke get the flu more easily and get sicker when they do. This is also true of people who breathe secondhand smoke, especially children and older people.

Quit smoking now. Call the Oregon Tobacco Quit Line at 1-800-QUIT-NOW for free coaching and advice on quitting. The call is free and confidential. Patches or medicines to help you quit may be available. Call 1-800-QUIT-NOW today or go to www.quitnow.net/oregon.
