Quitting smoking

High-quality smoking cessation counselling in the Thoraxklinik, Heidelberg

Smoking can cause many diseases, especially of the lung and respiratory tract. However, it may also reduce fertility. If either partner smokes, the fertilisation rate may be reduced by up to 30%.

Surveys suggest that 70-90% of the smokers want to quit but do not know how! Anyone who quits smoking will not just feel some physical improvements quickly, but may also contribute to the successful therapy of his/her smoking-related diseases or effectively prevent them.

The smoking cessation center at the Thoraxklinik Heidelberg will be glad to help you quit smoking. To register, please call
