For the ninth year running Public Health England has launched its national campaign 'Stoptober' to encourage thousands of smokers to make a quit attempt for the month of October and beyond.
This is based on the evidence that if a smoker can make it to 28 days smoke-free, they're five times more likely to quit for good!
For any smokers, stopping smoking is one of the best things you'll ever do for your health and looking after our health has never been more important. When you stop, you give your lungs the chance to repair and you'll be able to breathe easier. There are lots of other benefits too - and they start almost immediately.
If you smoke or know someone that does, please encourage them to join in this Stoptober 28-day challenge to quit smoking. All you need to do is download the free NHS Stoptober app, which helps you track your progress with a free personal quit plan, see how much you're saving, and get daily support.
