Next November, Tobacco Free Month, a new initiative to fight against smoking will be launched in France. The aim is to help smokers to quit smoking in a sustainable way.
National No Tobacco Month
The operation named "Me (s) without tobacco" will be launched in a few weeks, starting November 1 and will last a full month. This operation was first reflected by the state. Indeed, it is committed to providing the French a kit of help as well as brochures to accompany smokers wishing to stop smoking. Concretely, we do not know yet what will contain the help kit, we can expect patches, chewing gum. The kit will be available for order tomorrow on the site http://www.tabac-info-service.fr/. It will then be made available free of charge in pharmacies in November. This operation is tempting, both for the free, as the desire to quit for good.
An operation that can work?
Personally, I think that all the material tools (patches, chewing gum, etc. & #8230;) available to French people can help some smokers to quit smoking. But these material tools will remain "crutches". And without a real desire to question everyone's reasons and habits in relation to tobacco, I think that these "crutches" will only have a temporary effect for smokers who have been around for a long time. The question that must be asked is whether he really and completely wants to quit smoking? If you don't want to stop completely, the Tobacco-Free Month kit will at least help to slow down.
Far from stopping at this kit and the brochures, the Ministry of Health has completely redesigned the Tabac info Service app for the occasion. This will allow smokers to be accompanied in a more suitable way for their quitting.
A similar operation was launched in Great Britain and had a great success. It remains to be seen if this will work for the French.
Good luck to all those who try to stop and will try the adventure.
