A quit-smoking roadshow is rolling through west London as part of Stoptober.
The Stoptober NHS campaign aims to get people to quit smoking for 28 days, with figures showing who do so are five times more likely to stop for good.
Figures by Kick-it show one-in-five (20%) people in west London smoke, while a further breakdown of each borough form the area can be seen below.
Simon Nadolski, head of Kick-it, said: “Quitting smoking is the single best thing anybody can do for their health, locals considering joining the national challenge, should ask for support at a local level, using a specialist service like Kick-it will mean you are 4 times more likely to quit for good.”
Kick-it is a council funded stop-smoking service based in Hammersmith and runs clinics throughout west London.
