Previous campaigns have been incredibly successful with around 1 million smokers in England quitting since 2014. There is a wealth of research showing that vaping and e-cigarettes are far more effective in aiding smoking cessation than any other method.
Jeremy Kyle has been a smoker for 35 years but since seeing his mum pass away in 2017 he has looked mortality in the face. As a result he is giving quitting smoking another go.
Stoptober 2018: Jeremy Kyle espouses his support for vaping:
“The thing that is really helping me stay smoke free is vaping. I’m currently on the lowest nicotine strength and will then come off the e-cigarette altogether when the time is right for me. Since quitting I’ve learned just how important using support is and for people not to go ‘cold turkey’ – that certainly didn’t work for me in the past. If I can quit, I honestly believe anyone can quit if you just have the right support, and that’s what Stoptober is there to give you and I want people to know that and to do it this year.”

The NHS now has a large advice section on using e-cigarettes and vaping to help you quit. New for the Stoptober 2018 campaign is Public Health England’s ‘Personal Quit Plan’ which aims to help smokers find the right support to increase their chances of quitting.
