Stoptober, the national campaign to give up smoking during October, is back and bigger than ever before in Brighton & Hove. Smoking rates in the city are declining but at 19.9%, are higher than the national average of 15.5%.
If you stop smoking for 28 days you’re 5 times more likely to quit for good. With more support to help you quit, such as making the switch to vaping, there’s never been a better time to stub out the habit than this Stoptober.
Andrew from Bevendean went smoke free thanks to local support services, and has no regrets, better health, and more cash in his pocket. Watch his Stoptober story.
