What is Stoptober and why is it so important?
When we make big changes in our life it is always better to start with small steps first. Research suggests that those who successfully give up for four weeks are five times more likely to stay smoke-free.
The NHS said that last year more than 160, 000 people managed to stop smoking for the month of October with the Stoptober campaign.
Here are some interesting facts for you:
- There are approximately 10 million adults in Britain who smoke cigarettes
Find out how quickly you’ll notice the benefits of quitting with this stop smoking timeline.
- 20 minutes of not smoking: blood pressure and pulse rate return to normal.
- 8 hours of not smoking: nicotine and carbon monoxide levels in blood reduce by half, oxygen levels return to normal.
- 24 hours of not smoking: carbon monoxide will be eliminated from the body. Lungs start to clear out mucus and other smoking debris.
