As the nights get longer and weather gets that bit colder, we start thinking about Halloween, Bonfire Night and Christmas; they aren’t that far away now! October offers two options with Stoptober and Go Sober for October. So if you want to quit smoking or drink less, this month has got you covered!

Sober October encourages people to go booze-free in October to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, who need your support now more than ever.  In the UK lung cancer accounted for 21% of all cancer cases in 2017 and is the most common cause of cancer death [2].

Stoptober encourages people to stop smoking. Stopping smoking is one of the best things you’ll ever do for your health. When you stop, you give your lungs the chance to repair and you’ll be able to breathe easier. There are lots of other benefits too – and they start almost immediately.

Coronavirus (COVID-19): advice for smokers and vapers

COVID-19 is a respiratory viral infection that affects the lungs and airways. If you smoke tobacco, you generally have an increased risk of contracting a respiratory infection and more severe symptoms once infected. [1]

How does it affect my life insurance?

You can benefit from participating in these events. If you quit smoking and/or drinking you may be able to save money on your protection policies in addition to the health benefits of your new lifestyle.

While you can’t predict what happens you can predict how you can cope financially in the aftermath of an accident, illness or death. Don’t leave talking to an adviser about protection too long – if the unexpected should happen, being prepared is the key to being protected.
