According to Tobacco in Australia, smokers who quit for 28 days are five times more likely to stop for good, and 50% of smokers who set a quit date, quit successfully. That’s where Stoptober comes in — an annual that event encourage smokers to quit for 28 days in October, with the aim of stopping smoking permanently. Sounds good, right?
Quitting smoking has numerous benefits that go far beyond the obvious. According to the AIHW, by saying no, the 12.8 per cent of Australian men that are still smoking will have improved fitness, better skin and teeth, more confidence in social situations and much higher levels of fertility. Further to this, just one year after quitting, their risk of heart disease will have halved.
But to undo weeks, months and years of a smoking addiction — as unhealthy as it is — requires more than just mental strength and willpower. So much so that approximately 96% of smokers who use willpower alone in quitting are estimated to fail and resume smoking, according to a report in the National Library of Medicine.
It makes sense then, that even with the known health risks, people still struggle to completely let go.
In order to present new hope, Nicorette, the pioneer in Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) innovation and quitter support for over 40 years, have launched a product that aims to support smokers in their quest for better control of their health, with the help of modern-day technology.
