Stoptober 2021

Posted on September 20th, 2021


Stoptober is back to launch its 10th mass quit attempt on 1st October, calling on smokers in England to join the 2.3 million others who have made a quit attempt with the campaign since it launched a decade ago in 20121.

Over 6 million adults in England still smoke2, and it remains the leading cause of premature death, with almost 75,000 preventable deaths a year3..  A new nationwide survey of 2,000 current smokers released today has found that nearly half (45%) have been smoking more since the first lockdown began4.

If you are a smoker, quitting is one of the best things you can do for your health, allowing you to start moving better, breathe more easily and save money.  Join the thousands of others and start your quitting journey this October.

Just search ‘Stoptober’ for more information and free tools to help you quit.
