Looking for good reasons or the motivation to quit smoking? Good news, November 1st begins the 3rd edition of the "Mois sans Tabac" (Smoke-free Month in English). The perfect opportunity to quit smoking and get rid of tobacco at the same time as thousands of other smokers! Think you need help in this process?

And remember, it's never too late to become a superhero and quit smoking for good!

The Smoke-free Month, what is it?

The Smoke-free Month (Mois sans tabac in French) is a challenge launched for the first time by the French Ministry of Health and Solidarity. Its goal? To positively encourage smokers to stay away from tobacco for 30 days, so that they can then say goodbye to it for good. Smoke-free Month encourages smokers to unite to face this challenge together and support each other. Since its first edition in 2016, this initiative has enabled many smokers to quit smoking.

Why 30 days?

Because it has been proven that a smoker who doesn't yield to cigarettes during a month is five times more likely to stop smoking for good. The first 30 days of smoking cessation are the most stressful, because that's when withdrawal symptoms are felt the most. That's why, to succeed, you need to take up the challenge together!
