Launched in 2012, Stoptober is the 28-day stop smoking challenge 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.
Nearly a million people have taken part since Stoptober began five years ago. Smokers across the country are being urged to take part in the challenge and to visit the Stoptober page on the One You website to find the support that's right for you.
From the app, email and social media, to more information about the expert face to face support through local stop smoking services, as well as the different types of stop smoking aids available – Stoptober is here to help.
What's more, former England cricketer and Question of Sport captain Phil Tufnell; singer, songwriter and actress Natasha Hamilton; dancer, choreographer and theatre director Craig Revel Horwood and former footballer and TV pundit Chris Kamara are supporting this year’s Stoptober campaign.
