During October, thousands of people across England are taking part in Stoptober - a new, exciting 28 day challenge to stop smoking.
There's lots of free support to help you along the way - and the great news is that by stopping smoking for 28 days, you are five times more likely to stay



For the next 9 weeks, NHS Smokefree is supporting Stoptober. It's like October but without cigarettes! Join us for help on your 28 day challenge to stop smoking.
Thousands of people around the country are getting ready to join together for Stoptober. If you can quit for 28 days you’re five times more likely to quit for good. We’ll be here to provide help, advice and support every step of the way and more importantly, this is your space to help and support each other.

We know stopping smoking can be tough but you will reap the benefits when you do. From pl
aying footie with the kids and not running out of breath, to taking that extra break away with the money you’ll save, you’ll feel the difference in yourself as well as your pocket.

There are lots of ways you can find the support to help you achieve your 28 day goal. From our community here, the free Stoptober pack (which you can get at the Stoptober website), by downloading the app to your local stop smoking groups, or even your GP or local pharmacist.

Good luck!
