Stoptober is a leading event, initiated by Public Health England in a bid to encourage smokers to ditch cigarettes and start a healthier life. This yearly campaign takes part every October, running for 28 days, the reason why? According to the NHS, a smoker is FIVE times more likely to quit if they give up cigarettes for 28 days.
The health orientated event has been running since 2012, with each growing in success as more people kick it in the butt and as Public Health England develop new tactics to manage cravings.
In recent years, e-cigarettes have also featured within the campaign after Public Health England released a study in 2018 that stated these devices are 95% less harmful than traditional cigarettes. The NHS claimed them to be a particularly effective stop smoking aid, especially when combined with face-to-face support from health professionals.
The entire event is designed to give support and help people feel healthier, save money and protect others from second-hand smoke.
At Vampire Vape we fully support the campaign as we’re passionate about helping others lead a healthier lifestyle, and Stoptober is a key event marked in our calendars.
