Be Smoke Free


Did you know that if you quit smoking for 28 days, you’re five times more likely to quit for good? Stoptober is back, so why not take the pledge this October? A smoke-free life could be just 28 days away!

In the 10 years since Stoptober launched, more than two million people have pledged to quit smoking with NHS support. Quitting is the best thing you can do for your health and the health of those around you, and the NHS’s Better Health campaign has all of the resources you’ll ever need to start your quit journey this autumn.

There are many health benefits to stopping smoking, and the results can be seen and felt almost immediately. From an improved sense of taste and smell to better circulation and an increase in lung function of 10%, the benefits are not only short-term, but life-long.

But stopping smoking doesn’t just improve your physical health, it can also boost your mental wellbeing. Going smoke-free can improve your mood, as well as help to relieve stress, anxiety and depression.

Living a smoke-free life isn’t just good for your health, but also your wallet. Since 2012, the cost of tobacco in the UK has increased by 74%. By quitting smoking, you could save £5.21 a day – that’s £1,875 a year!
