Stoptober is back!
From the 1st October, thousands of people will be taking part in Stoptober to become smokefree.
This year, Stoptober is asking smokers to challenge their barriers to quitting and focus on their motivation. We can help you re-evaluate your relationship with smoking and encourage you to split-up with cigarettes.
Will you be joining us this year?
Quitting smoking is one of the best things you can do for your health. By doing so you will reduce your risk of cancer, heart and lung disease, improve your circulation and energy, as well as helping to reduce stress and protect your loved ones.
Why quit during Stoptober?
Research has shown that if you can stop smoking for 28 days, you are five times more likely to stay smokefree for good. Stoptober is the biggest mass-participation quit attempt in the country and since launching in 2012, has driven over 1.9 million quit attempts.
By breaking your quit attempt into chunks, it can seem less daunting. Focus on the 28 days as the first step and you’ll put yourself in the best position to stay smokefree for good.

Quitting on your own can seem overwhelming and for most people, relying on willpower alone is the least effective way to stop. But getting support can make all the difference.
Studies have shown that you are three times more likely to quit smoking with a combination of stop smoking medication and specialist help and support from your local Stop Smoking Service.
Give yourself the best chance of quitting smoking for good this Stoptober and get in touch with the Stop Smoking Service.
