Smoking cessation treatment with health insurance

Since April 2006, smoking cessation treatment has been covered by insurance.
This is not a mere habit or preference, but a nicotine addiction illness, with the necessary treatment.
Treatment is available to any smoker who meets certain conditions.


Harm of second-hand smoke

Smoking also affects the people around us.
There are two types of cigarette smoke: mainstream smoke (smoke that smokers inhale directly) and second-hand smoke (purple smoke that rises from cigarettes). The content of harmful substances is much higher in second-hand smoke, which makes it more irritating.

The idea of "quitting smoking" not only for yourself but also for people around you such as your family.
It is especially important when considering the health of infants.

(Smoking is greatly involved in the sudden death of infants during sleep)

Beware of misunderstandings! !!

Passive smoking cannot be prevented with an air purifier.

● Reason 1
Smoke is sucked in
only about 40 cm from the suction port for commercial use and within 20 cm for home use.

● Reason 2
I can't remove harmful substances.

Therefore, smoking cessation is the only way to prevent second-hand smoke.
