Suffolk: Stoptober Campaign Success
There has been a big increase in people asking for help to quit smoking in Suffolk during the nationwide 'Stoptober' campaign.
Live Well Suffolk has praised the county’s smokers for their efforts to become smoke free, after reporting an increase in enquiries for their stop smoking services.
The Stoptober campaign, which was launched by the Department of Health, saw more than a quarter of a million people across the UK pledge to try to stop smoking for 28 days. During the campaign Live Well Suffolk, which operates the county’s free stop smoking services, achieved a 123% increase in enquiries for their stop smoking services.
Tim Roberts, Director of Live Well Suffolk said: “It is great to see campaigns such as Stoptober encourage smokers to take their first steps to becoming quitting for good. We have found that more people are saying to us that they want to become healthier and stopping smoking plays a big role in supporting your overall health and wellbeing.”
He continued: “Smoking is one of Suffolk’s biggest killers and we are here to support all of those people who are struggling to quit the habit. After all, you are four times more likely to be successful if you seek external help and support rather than go it alone.”
Nearly one in five adults in Suffolk smoke and half of them will die as a result.
