SMOKERS still have time to stub out the habit as part of a month-long campaign aimed at getting residents to quit.
Mytime Active's Stop Smoking Service commissioned by Worcestershire County Council offers advice and support for those hoping to join in with Stoptober - a 28-day national challenge run in October.
Senior manager Anna Skeats said: "Someone who quits smoking for Stoptober, and doesn't smoke again, could gain an extra seven days of life every 28 days for the rest of their life. Along with huge health benefits, quitting saves the average smoker over £150 a month and almost £2,000 a year."
