According to Tobacco in Australia, smokers who quit for 28 days are five times more likely to quit for good, and 50% of smokers who set a cessation date successfully quit. That’s where Stoptober comes in – an annual event that encourages smokers to quit smoking for 28 days in October with the goal of quitting smoking permanently. Sounds good right?
Quitting smoking has numerous benefits that go well beyond the obvious. According to AIHW, by saying no to the 12.8 percent of Australian men who still smoke, they will have improved fitness, better skin and teeth, more confidence in social situations and much higher fertility. In addition, their risk of heart disease will have halved just one year after quitting smoking.
But reversing a smoking addiction that has lasted for weeks, months, and years—no matter how unhealthy it may be—takes more than just mental strength and willpower. So much so that an estimated 96% of smokers who quit through willpower alone fail and resume smoking, according to a report by the National Library of Medicine.
So it makes sense that despite the well-known health risks, people still struggle to fully let go.
