Have you heard of Stoptober? Starting October 1st, it’s the first ever mass quit smoking attempt happening in the UK.
The idea is that quitting together increases the chances you’ll quit, and if you can quit for an entire month, then you’re 5 times more likely to quit long term.
A lot of people (particularly heavier smokers) will need treatments to help them quit, so we’ve put together this infographic on the best possible ways to quit.
Obviously everyone’s different, but if you go cold turkey, you’ve got a 4% chance of staying quit. But if you get the right meds and counselling, you’ve got a 30% chance of staying quit. That’s a 7 times better chance!
The research done was based on UK and US data, and is applicable to most English speaking countries.
