Smokers urged to kick the habit in Stoptober 28-day challenge
Enfield Council is urging people to go cigarette-free next month as part of a nationwide anti-smoking drive.
The 28-day quitting challenge, donned Stoptober, encourages people throughout the UK to pledge to kick the habit in a bid to help them stop for good.
Enfield and Haringey Stop Smoking Service is running the challenge in the borough.
Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Community Wellbeing and Public Health, Councillor Christine Hamilton, said: "We'll be offering lots of help and support to smokers who want to kick the habit and I'd urge people who want to quit to give it a go during Stoptober.
“All the research shows that people who stop smoking for 28 days are much more likely to give up for good so now is a good time to start."
More than 15,000 people have quit smoking in the last four years after receiving help from Enfield and Haringey Stop Smoking Service.
Smokers can pledge to quit at Asda in West Mount, Edmonton, tomorrow.
