Public Health England


Stoptober, which launched in 2012, is a Public Health England (PHE) tobacco marketing programme. It is an annual mass quit smoking calendar event, wholly created through marketing. The campaign aims to inspire as many smokers as possible to make a quit attempt from 1 October and maintain it for at least 28 days. Evidence shows that if you stop smoking for 28 days, you are 5 times more likely to stop for good.

There a lots of ways to quit and Stoptober can help people choose what works for them. Stoptober offers a range of free support to help people on their quitting journey including an app, daily emails, Facebook Messenger and lots of encouragement from the Stoptober online community on Facebook. In addition, people can get expert face-to-face advice from local stop smoking services.

By stopping smoking, you can feel healthier, save money, and protect your family.
