Smoking, Vaping, and COVID-19: A Dangerous Mix!
Linda Carter Sobell, Ph.D., ABPP, President's Distinguished Professor
According to the CDC, the COVID-19 spreads “mainly through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks.” Thus, the value of face masks. If you come in contact with virus droplets, the likelihood of you becoming infected is increased. When smoking or vaping you have to lower your mask repeatedly. Further, smoking and vaping can compromise lung function which can worsen the course of COVID-19. While these are the most difficult of times for all, if you smoke or vape this would be a good time to lessen your risk by stopping. This podcast will discuss the relationship between smoking, vaping, and COVID, as well as providing tips for how to quit using tobacco products successfully. Lastly, she has received several awards including: Betty Ford Award; Norman Zinberg Award–Harvard Medical School; the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies Lifetime Achievement Award; and the Jellinek Memorial Award for outstanding contributions to the alcohol field.
