Time to Quit – Campaign Resources

The “Time to Quit” campaign was launched in April 2020. 

The campaign is designed to help support more quit attempts across London using the remote Stop Smoking London services and remote local stop smoking service offer.

We know that smoking tobacco damages the lungs and airways causing a range of severe respiratory problems and that smoking also harms the immune system.  Expert advice remains that the best thing a smoker can do for their current and future health is to quit, and to quit now.

We also know from our insight work with London smokers, that the majority plan to quit smoking in the future.  Our current campaign will take into account insight undertaken on London smokers aged 40 to 65 years old. Read the over 40s insight key headlines here.
