Stoptober - Take part in the 28 day challenge

During October, the nation’s eight million smokers will again be encouraged to take part in the mass participation quit attempt – Stoptober. If you can stop smoking for 28 days you are five times more likely to stay Smokefree, and Stoptober leads smokers through a detailed step-by-step programme to help them achieve this goal with daily tips and advice on the go.

Did you know...

  • Smokers lose an average of 16 years of life

    Quitting means 16 more family Christmases, birthday celebrations, wedding anniversaries and FA cup finals

  • Smoking kills about 80,000 people in England every year. Almost enough people to fill Wembley Stadium

  • A 20 a day smoker will spend almost £48,000 over the next 20 years

    Non–smokers have more disposable income than smokers. That means more holidays, more days out with the family and more money to spend on treats

  • If you smoke, your children are twice as likely to smoke when they grow up

    By not smoking you protect the health of those close to you
