Up to 7 days’ life gained for every 28 you remain smokefree

Stoptober – England and Wales’ mass 28-day stop smoking challenge – is back following its huge success last year, which saw 160,000 people successfully complete the challenge.

The campaign is launched by Public Health England (PHE) as new research shows the extra years of life that can be gained by giving up smoking. Someone who quits smoking for Stoptober, and doesn’t smoke again, could gain an extra 7 days of life, every 28 days, for the rest of their life.
