Stop smoking with Stoptober

Stop smoking with Stoptober

Join the thousands quitting with Stoptober this year

We all know smoking is bad for you but many of us find it difficult to keep the motivation going and are afraid of going back on the fags! Stoptober, the annual campaign during the month of October, is a great way of getting inspiration, motivation and also finding like-minded people who have found it a struggle.

Public Health England is urging smokers who want to quit to use a variety of methods because using willpower alone is the least successful way to stop.

Visit the Stoptober website for a full range of lively and interactive support options. Sign up for free support and exclusive content.

And there's information on local support options on the People First website to help you stop smoking including details of the ONE You and Kick It campaign
