Tobacco is the single largest cause of avoidable death in the EU. The “Ex-smokers are Unstoppable” campaign aims to emphasize the life-changing benefits of giving up smoking. The campaign wants to encourage and assist people to quit with the help of iCoach, a free online health coach, hoping to ensure that up-and-coming generations live long and healthy lives in a smoke-free Europe.
I started smoking when I was 13, I am now 31. I have tried in the past to stop and on a few occasions have stopped, but then started again. I am determined to stop and when I came across this new campaign I took a further look.
“Ex-smokers are Unstoppable” is a three-year awareness raising campaign promoted by the European Commission. The campaign provides smokers with motivation to quit and – very importantly – with practical assistance at www.exsmokers.eu. The campaign highlights ex-smokers as inspiring individuals and role models who encourage current smokers to quit.
