Stoptober – join the challenge today and quit smoking (or something else!)

1 October 2014

Stoptober is the 28-day national stop smoking challenge, now running in Wales. Research has shown that people who manage to stop smoking for 28 days are five times more likely to stop for good and last year in England, thousands of people successfully quit in the biggest mass participation stop smoking challenge ever.

Smokers who register for the challenge receive as much (or as little) support as they want to keep them on track. All Stoptober support is free and includes:
  • Stoptober stop smoking pack
  • A 28-day smartphone app, with daily updates and quitting advice
  • Text service for motivational pick-me-ups
  • Detailed tools and tips for coping, as well as the encouragement and support from thousands of people going through the same thing via Social Media

How to register

Stoptober is an online based campaign and registration is only available via the Stoptober website.

Quit something else if you’re not a smoker

While Stoptober is a national campaign aimed at smokers, there’s nothing preventing you from quitting something else; perhaps you’ve been wanting to stop – insert an undesirable habit/behaviour here – but you just haven’t been able to get started. Why not take some action today and turn Stoptober into an opportunity to make a positive change in your life!
