Smokers in Leicester are being urged to take part in this year’s Stoptober campaign – an annual government scheme which encourages smokers to pledge to a one-month smoke-free period.
Stoptober, which has supported over 1.7 million people on their quit journey so far, highlights the fact that smokers who reach 28 days without a cigarette are five times more likely to quit for good.
Several support services are available throughout the month, including Stoptober’s free personal quit plan and the Stoptober app, which enables users to track their progress, discover how much money they’re saving and access daily support.
Leicester-based smokers can access free, friendly and non-judgemental support from the Leicester Stop Smoking Service all year round.
The first Service in the country to become e-cigarette-friendly, Stop believes that vaping is a safer alternative to smoking – and in some cases can provide e-cigarette starter kits, as well as the behavioural support that makes a big difference to success rates.
