Celebrating 10 Years of Stoptober!
Over the past 10 years, Stoptober has helped over 2 million people make a quit attempt. This year, the campaign is celebrating these individuals and inspiring the current 6 million smokers in England to give quitting a go. Defeating cigarettes can give you back your freedom and help you become healthier, fitter, save you money and even look better.
We are encouraging residents to support their family, friends, and colleagues this Stoptober, to help them to ditch their cigarettes for 28 days (starting 1 October), to experience the physical and mental health benefits that quitting smoking brings.
Someone who quits smoking for the 28 days of Stoptober is five times more likely to stay smoke free for good. They are three times more likely to succeed in their goals with behavioural support and medication from a specialist. Combining professional help with support from family and friends is a huge bonus. Quitting can improve mood and help relieve stress, anxiety, and depression.
Be a supportive friend this Stoptober, spread the word about The Stop Smoking Service. Support and encourage the people you care about to sign up today and go smoke free.
