LEEDS, England, October 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Stoptober - the 28-day stop smoking challenge - is set to return this October, backed by a whole host of celebrities, sports personalities and famous faces who will be supporting smokers across the country. Last year, around 170,000 people successfully stopped smoking for 28 days in the biggest mass participation stop smoking challenge ever.
And INCIG, one of the UK's leading electronic cigarette brands, is fully supporting the NHS and their aim to cut the smoking rate with their October campaign again - Stoptober. INCIG will show its support for 'Stoptober', for the continuing initiative organised by the NHS, which aims to encourage more of the UK's smoking community to cut out cigarettes for good.
The NHS initiative was introduced in 2012 following statistics which revealed the percentage of smokers not wishing to stop smoking had increased during 2008-2011, from 15 per cent to 21.85 per cent. Smoking is the biggest cause of premature death in England and each year it accounts for over 100,000 deaths in the UK and 1 in 2 long-term smokers will die prematurely from a smoking related disease.
INCIG, which offers smokers a healthier and cheaper alternative to traditional tobacco cigarettes, is happy to support and encourage even more smokers to make the switch during the 28-day NHS Stoptober campaign once again!
It has been found that smokers who manage to quit for a minimum of 28 days are five times more likely to continue and stop completely. In support of Stoptober, INCIG are running a variety of promotions along with helpful tips in making the switch from traditional tobacco cigarettes.
INCIG Sales Director, Claire Green, states: "Stoptober was a massive success in 2012 and we want to recreate this once again with even better results. This is a great opportunity to make more of the UK's smokers aware of ecigarettes and the benefits they hold, both to their health and financially too. All at INCIG hope more smokers jump on board and get involved with NHS Stoptober campaign and quit smoking."
And to encourage all the smokers out there, INCIG is offering a massive 30% discount off its entire range of products by simply using discount code 'INCIG30' until 28th October!
