Split up with smoking this Stoptober

Published Thursday, 17 October 2019

Stoptober is underway and smokers are being encouraged to give quitting another go – even if they've tried before.

Being smoke-free for 28 days increases success rates of quitting for good by five times.

Six out of 10 smokers want to quit and most try to quit using willpower alone (or 'cold turkey').  However, the most successful quit attempts use a combination of effective stop smoking support methods.
