Stoptober, the 28-day stop smoking campaign from Public Health England which encourages and supports smokers across the country to quit smoking for the month of October, is set to return for a sixth time this year. It is the biggest mass quit attempt in the country and is based on research that shows that if you can stop smoking for 28-days, you are five times more likely to quit for good.
There a lots of ways to quit and Stoptober can help you choose what works for you. You can quit using medication (including nicotine replacement therapies such as patches and gum) or e-cigarettes. Stoptober offers a range of free support to help you including an app, daily emails, Facebook Messenger and lots of encouragement from the Stoptober online community on Facebook.
