Today we celebrate Markus for officially becoming smokefree.
Markus's main reason for accessing the service was due to suffering with COPD, Markus had been recently hospitalised due to this and was unable to walk and found breathing incredibly difficult.
Markus told us that when he first came to Yorkshire Smokefree support he never believed he would be able to quit so fast. To help with his quit smoking journey Markus used patches and he found them very helpful.
Since quitting Markus's breathing has improved, no longer feels breathless, has much more energy and now finds it much easier to sleep. Alongside this he has saved loads of money and has gained some healthy weight due to having an appetite.
Markus told us that the lockdown had made his quit difficult but he was determined.
