Time to butt out? The most popular time of year to quite smoking
“The month with the most reported quits is almost always January, 15% of quits,” the post says. “The months with the least reported quitting are the spring months of April to June, in which fewer than half as many successful quits are reported as in January.”
Statistics Canada estimates that an average of 400,000 Canadians quit smoking annually during the past six years, a number the post points out is equivalent to the population of Halifax.
