What is Stoptober?

Stoptober is an England wide campaign calling on all smokers to quit smoking, starting on October 1st and lasting for 28 days. The campaign is being supported all over the country by local NHS Stop Smoking Services, Local Authorities, pharmacies, retailers and large employers.

What's the benefit?

Research has found that if you can stop smoking for 28 days, you’re five times more likely to quit for good. Making that step isn’t easy, but knowing you’re not alone – that thousands of others have pledged to quit too – can be a huge boost to willpower.

You’ll also have multiple resources available to help you along your quit journey.

Results and resources available

The Stoptober of 2014 saw more than a quarter of a million smokers pledge to try and quit smoking.

By signing up to Stoptober, smokers can benefit from the following things:

  • Sign up to a text and email service, which provides motivational messages offering daily support and encouragement
  • Register for the app which is active for 28 days with helpful hints and tips for a successful quit attempt, available on smartphones and online
