Stoptober launches today but there’s still time to take part!
Stoptober is the biggest mass quit attempt in the country and thousands of people will be joining the challenge from today to support each other to stop smoking.
If you’re a smoker and you want to give up, Stoptober is a great time to give it a try, as there is loads of support available and if you can stop smoking for 28-days, you are five times more likely to stay quit for good.
Hertfordshire’s Stop Smoking Service is on hand to help you – increasing your chances of success four-fold. The free service provides ongoing support to help people through their journey and can give advice on all forms of nicotine replacement therapy as well as e-cigarettes.
For help to quit, including advice about e-cigarettes, text SMOKEFREE to 80818, call 0800 389 3 998 or visit www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/stopsmoking
Alternatively search ‘Stoptober’ online and find out about the range of free support available, including an app, daily emails, Facebook Messenger and encouragement from the Stoptober online community on Facebook.
