STOPTOBER | Where to go for help quitting!

Hillbrook Dental

1 in 10 smokers want to quit smoking in the next 3 months and getting support can greatly increase a person’s chances of quitting successfully.

The most successful way to quit smoking is to access your local stop smoking services. Local services can support those who use Shisha pipes, E-cigarettes and those who smoke Cigarettes. 

What about E-cigarettes?

4 in 10smokers and ex-smokers mistakenly believe that nicotine in cigarettes is the cause of most of the smoking – related cancer. With this in mind, it’s important for the dental team to advise patients that although not risk free, E-cigarettes are far less harmful than smoking, with an estimated risk reduction of at least 95%. Almost all of the harm from smoking comes from the thousands of other chemicals in tobacco smoke, many of which are toxic. The Independent British Vape Trade Association (IBVTA) is backing the Stoptober initiative.

The Stoptober campaign has driven over 1 million quit attempts to date and is the biggest mass quit attempt in the country. It is based on research that shows that if you can stop smoking for 28-days, you are five times more likely to stay smoke free for good.
