Stop smoking - Public Health Dorset
It’s never too late to quit smoking and there are many health benefits to stopping; not only does it improve your physical health, but it also is proven to boost your mental health and wellbeing. Quitting smoking could also mean more money in your pocket, with the average smoker saving up to £1,800 a year by stopping smoking. Someone who smokes 20-a-day can save up to £4,000 a year.
Stoptober is soon coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean you can’t quit any time of year, and there are lots of resources that can help you. Many people will attempt to quit smoking on their own, but this can be quite challenging. Did you know that with the right support, you’re up to x3 as likely to quit for good?
