Stoptober is back to help more smokers split up from their relationship with smoking.

This Stopober, smokers are being encouraged to end a bad relationship and split up with smoking for 28 days from 1st October.

The latest data from the UCL Smoking Toolkit Study suggest a 2.2% drop in adult smoking prevalence so far in 2019. Public Health England is encouraging England’s remaining smokers to join in with the nation’s biggest quit attempt and is providing them with the information and support they need to split up with smoking now.

If you are a smoker, quitting is the best thing you can do for your health and the health of those around you. Whether you’ve tried to quit before, or this is the first time, Stoptober is encouraging you to become part of the movement and join thousands of people who are splitting up with smoking this October. If you make it to 28 days, you’re five times more likely to stay smokefree.

Just search ‘Stoptober’ online to find a range of free quitting support including the Stoptober app, Facebook messenger bot, daily emails and Stoptober online communities.
