Women Twice As Likely To Quit Smoking than Men, UK
The recent study revealed that approximately 400,000 women in comparison with 200,000 men tried to stop smoking on the UK’s largest quit smoking awareness campaign this year. At the campaign smokers were asked “Is it your time to quit smoking?”.
Besides, almost 2 million (20%) adult people decided to make a step to smoking cessation this Day. During that day future nonsmokers planned their quit journey – they read information how to stop smoking, smoked less cigarettes than in a usual day, participated in a No Smoking Day event or see the dedicated website for those who wants to quit smoking.
Amit Aggarwal, Chief Executive of the No Smoking Day charity congratulated all those people who managed to stop smoking on No Smoking Day. By the way, the event as No Smoking Day is celebrated on March, 9. Quitting smoking is the most important thing a person can do for his or her health.
