Since it first launched 11 years ago, Stoptober has helped over 2.5 million people make a quit attempt. This year, the campaign is helping the nearly 6 million smokers in England build their confidence and give quitting a go.
It’s never too late to quit – stopping smoking brings immediate benefits to health, including for people with an existing smoking-related disease.
And did you know? On average smokers spend £38.59 a week on tobacco. That means they could have around £2,000 more to spend a year by quitting.
Essex Working Well is part of the Essex Wellbeing Service who have a dedicated Stop Smoking service with lots of ways to help you quit.
Why not give them a call on 0300 303 9988 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like support for your employees.
