Evidence shows that people are more likely to quit with specialist support. In 2017 the Hampshire stop smoking service, Quit4Life, helped 2,800 people to quit. Statistics relating to Hampshire reveal that last year smoking killed 5,537 people and 10,354 people were admitted to hospital with a smoking related illness.
The County Council is urging smokers to take advantage of the local stop smoking service Quit4life, make a quit plan and give up for good in 2019. Quit4life can also help smokers to quit using e-cigarettes which are now the most popular stop smoking aid in England and are particularly effective when combined with expert support from a stop smoking service.
