The Department of Health has launched a new campaign to encourage smokers to quit in the New Year. The campaign aims to increase awareness by highlighting the immediate damage being done by every single cigarette. The health harms message focuses on the fact that every 15 cigarettes smoked causes a mutation that can lead to cancer…
Smokers are being asked to give up smoking for 28 days from 1 October in the first ever mass quit attempt. Stoptober, is backed by Cancer Research UK and the British Heart Foundation, and is the first 28-day quit attempt of its kind to encourage the nation’s 8 million smokers to give up. People who stop smoking for 28 days are five times more likely to stay smoke free, so smokers who sign up will be given support and encouragement throughout the month.
Department of Health launches national TV and radio advertising campaign to encourage smokers to quit
A national TV and radio advertising campaign has been launched to encourage smokers to quit. Smokers can pick up a new and improved NHS Quit Kit from thousands of pharmacies across England to help them stop smoking. The NHS Quit Kit has been developed by experts, smokers and ex-smokers, and contains practical tools and advice to help smokers quit smoking for good. The kit includes a health/wealth wheel, which helps quitters calculate how much they are saving and the improvements they will see to their health and a ‘tangle’ toy to help keep hands busy.
