Quit-smoking campaign declared a success

The government has said anti-smoking campaign – the heavily-publicised Stoptober – has been a success, and has built on the positivity generated from last year.

Nearly 250,000 people in England and Wales quit smoking cigarettes for 28 days, making them five times more likely to be able to quit for good.

The people who quit could see their lives extended by up to a week – if they all packed up, they could add a collective 4,700 years of life to the population.

As an extra bonus, the average ex-smoker from the Stoptober campaign will have saved around £141 over the four weeks in October.
