Calderdale smokefree homes and cars
As well as wanting to help you stop smoking Calderdale specialist NHS stop smoking service also want to help keep people safe from the dangers of secondhand smoke.
Wherever people smoke, there is secondhand smoke in the air. Secondhand smoke comes from the tip of a cigarette and the smoke that is breathed back out by the smoker. Although you might not notice secondhand smoke because it is almost invisible and odourless it’s still there.
Even if you open a window, secondhand smoke will still be present in a room after two and a half hours! Smoking in a car is even worse because all of the smoke is concentrated into a small space.
So if you’re smoking at home or in the car think about who is smoking with you.
