Yesterday marked the launch of Stoptober – a national campaign established by Public Health England that provides an opportunity for people nationwide to quit smoking.
Smokers often voice excitement at the idea and seem motivated to get involved in the Stoptober movement. However, this initial enthusiasm often dwindles as the temptations get too much and relapsing appears to be the easy way out. Ryan, a member of staff at HealthExpress, hopes to prove this theory wrong by attempting to quit smoking for good this October. To help him through the process, he’ll be taking prescription medication, Champix and will be documenting his progress every week in the form of a video diary. We asked Ryan about his smoking habits in order to learn more about his motives for quitting:
Any smoker will know how challenging it can be to quit smoking. Drawing upon will power and strength, Ryan will know that staying positive throughout his journey is key. Champix can help with the physical cravings, but determination is crucial if he is to achieve his objectives.
You can watch Ryan share his experiences online at the HealthExpress blog or brand video channels this October. If you too are considering giving up smoking and need some extra motivation, then head over to our stop smoking resource page for advice and treatment options.
