No Smoking Day 9th March 2022

Here at the Stop Smoking Service, we are excited to be celebrating another National No Smoking Day, an annual health awareness day, which will see on average 750,000 people in the UK attempt to quit. Join in today!


Every time you try to stop smoking, you’re a step closer to success. Don’t give up on giving up.


Many smokers do not quit on their first attempt and need several tries before they succeed. This means it’s important not to give up on giving up.

The sooner you stop the greater the health gains but whenever you stop your health will benefit.

So how do you start to stop? Here are some top tips that will help.

Plan Ahead

Make a promise, set a date and stick to it. Once you have committed to No Smoking Day as your quit date, think forward to times where it might be difficult (a night out, for example), and plan your actions or escape routes in advance.

Stay Active

Studies show that exercise, even a 5-minute walk around your home or the office, cuts cravings and may help your brain produce anti-craving chemicals.

Change Your Routines

Reflect on when in your routine you usually have a cigarette and then make some changes. If you normally have a cigarette straight after dinner, try getting up and doing the washing up instead.

Re-visit motivations

Write a list of all of the reasons you want to quit. Keep re-visiting that list and reminding yourself why you want to be smokefree.
