Stoptober Initiative to Quit Smoking

E-Lites, the UK’s most recognised electronic cigarettes brand has pledged its support for the latest nationwide campaign to help more people to quit smoking, Stoptober.

From 1st – 28th October 2012, E-Lites will get behind ‘Stoptober’, a brand new initiative organised by the Department of Health,  which aims to encourage more of the UK’s smokers to stub out their cigarettes for good.


The initiative has been introduced following recent 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. Additionally, the research found that the number of smokers who have tried to quit smoking has reduced by around 10 per cent.

E-Lites, which offers smokers a safer, cheaper and legally unrestricted alternative to tobacco cigarettes, is keen to encourage even more smokers to make the sensible switch during the 28-day ‘Stoptober event.

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.

E-Lites co-founder and director Adrian Everett said: “Stoptober is a fantastic opportunity to make more smokers aware of the advantages of ‘E-Liteing’ as opposed to smoking. Our products have introduced a new ‘harm reduction’ option for those who are struggling to quit completely, or simply don’t wish to. We’ve developed a reliable, safe and satisfying alternative that has numerous advantages over regular tobacco cigarettes, and we hope as many smokers as possible will get involved with the Stoptober campaign and stop smoking.”

Awareness and acceptance of electronic cigarettes has grown massively over the past few years, with around 250,000 people in the UK now using E-Lites on a daily basis and enjoying the many benefits of doing so.

A major advantage is that E-Lites are much easier on the pocket than their conventional counterparts. It’s estimated that a typical 20-a-day smoker could save around £162 per month by switching to E-Lites. Furthermore, the products are legally unrestricted for use almost anywhere, since they produce no smoke, no nasty smells and present no passive smoking issues.

E-Lites contain a nicotine solution that users inhale as a vapour, recreating the satisfaction of a traditional cigarette but without tobacco, tar and other toxins.
