This October, the annual stop smoking campaign, ‘Stoptober’, is running again and has helped over 2.5 million people make a quit attempt, to date. Smoking remains the single biggest behavioural cause of preventable illness and death in England. We know smokers who make it to 28 days smoke free, are five times more likely to quit for good.

Pharmacy teams can get involved in Stoptober to help support people to quit smoking or you can call your local Cessation service on Stop smoking – 0161 823 4157
