FASTEST DROP IN SMOKING RATE IN OVER A DECADE AS STOPTOBER LAUNCHES

The people who plan and buy healthcare for Cheshire have backed the Stoptober campaign that helps smokers split up from their relationship with smoking. The county’s NHS clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) are urging smokers to follow Stoptober and end a bad relationship by spliting up with smoking for 28 days from 1 October.

There are not only health benefits but also money saving benefits. If you smoke 20 cigarettes a day you could save up to £75.39 a week, £323.10 a month and £3,931 a year by stopping smoking (based on an average packet of cigarettes costing £10.77) Just search ‘Stoptober’ online to find a range of free quitting support including the Stoptober app, Facebook messenger bot, daily emails and Stoptober online communities.
