Stoptober 2017 < Go Back September 25, 2017 – Posted in: Blog - General
Are you looking to quit smoking or support someone you love in giving up cigarettes? With tonnes of support and useful resources, Stoptober is a great time to give up.
Stoptober is a yearly event from the NHS encouraging as many people as possible to stay off cigarettes for the whole of October. When you stop smoking for 28 days or more, you’re 5 times more likely to quit for good so stopping for the month could help you stop forever.
This year the NHS are endorsing e cigarettes as a method to help you quit smoking. Although there are many scare stories in the media, Public Health England declared e cigs to be around 95% less harmful than smoking. E Cigarettes don’t produce tar or carbon monoxide, which are the two most dangerous elements of cigarette smoke. There is no evidence so far that vapour from e cigarettes is harmful to others and research to date indicates that any risk of harm is extremely low, especially when compared with secondhand tobacco smoke (source – https://www.nhs.uk/smokefree/help-and-advice/e-cigarettes)
Around 2.9 million people use e cigarettes in the UK and it’s estimated that more than half of these vapers have quit tobacco smoking*.
