Stoptober - October Quit Smoking Support

Stoptober is back for 2016 to encourage smokers across England to make a quit attempt during October. Stoptober has driven almost 1 million quit attempts to date, with thousands more likely to take part this autumn.

You can do your bit.

It's now time to ORDER FREE RESOURCES to advertise Stoptober in your workplace:

There are snazzy turquoise posters, 'conversation starters' (miniature leaflets), leaflet dispensers and email signatures all using the ONE YOU branding that you may have already seen. Please order them now and display them in staff areas as soon as they arrive so that everyone who might want to quit can access the support!

Stoptober in a nutshell

Launched in 2012, Stoptober is the 28-day stop smoking challenge from Public Health England that encourages and supports smokers across England towards quitting for good. Stoptober is based on the insight that if you can stop smoking for 28-days, you are five times more likely to be able to stay quit for good. The campaign chunks down the quitting process, presents it as a more manageable 28 days and rallies people around a specific date to get started.

Stoptober launches in mid-September and encourages as many smokers as possible to prepare to quit from 1 October by signing up to the campaign and utilising the range of free resources and support available. Throughout October the campaign looks to continue to recruit smokers to take part, whilst also encouraging and supporting quitters through the 28-day smoke-free journey.
