Stoptober – are you up for the challenge, and could you do with a little extra helping hand?
Each year the NHS runs a heavily publicised campaign to encourage Britain’s 8 million smokers to quit their habit. The goal is to inspire people to give up the ciggies for just 28 days, which they claim makes you 5 times more likely to quit for good. There’s no doubting that Stoptober has been a massive awareness success; thousands of people take part each year and many lives have been changed. But for everyone who hits their target many more fall short, and that’s where a little extra helping hand could come in useful.
