Quitting every 28 days adds 1 week to a smoker’s life

London: Former smokers can gain an extra seven days of life for every 28 days they refrain from tobacco, a new study has suggested.

People wanting to quit smoking are being urged to join the ‘Stoptober challenge,’ which starts on October 1, the Independent reported.

According to a government campaign from Public Health England, someone who quits for a month and does not start again could gain an extra seven days of life every 28 days for the rest of their life.
