Stoptober is a 28-day “stop smoking” annual challenge that was started back in 2012 by Public Health England (PHE). This supports and encourages smokers in England and other parts of the U.K. to quit smoking.
This is based on the belief that if you can avoid smoking for 28 days, there’s a huge chance that you can quit smoking for good. Stoptober encourages smokers to avoid smoking starting from October 1 with the help of free resources available such as vapes.
Its main objective? To motivate as many smokers as possible to quit smoking by giving them the resources they need to divert their attention as well as give them reasons why they should stop smoking for good. But then again, this is easier said than done. Good thing there are vapes that can help make the journey easier.
Vapetober is the vaping industries take on stoptober. For people who have smoked for many years or even decades, going cold turkey or even quitting over a month just isn’t possible or realistic.
Another solution put forward by the vaping industry is to make the move from smoking to vaping. A great example of this is the recent vapetober campaign by Mist.
Each Vapetober Mist aims is to get as many people as possible to switch from smoke to vapour. With over 2.6 million people in the U.K. already Vaping, it is now one of the most popular and successful ways to make the switch.
At Mist we are proud to have helped over 20,000 people to make the switch.
