Stoptober’s back! Did you know that if you stop smoking for 28 days you're 5 times more likely to quit for good?

All the support you need to quit, from a free app and daily emails, to face-to-face expert support and much more, is available from Stoptober. There’s lots of support to help you, so choose the combination that's right for you.

Devon's Stoptober poster is available for display.

You are four times more likely to give up for good with support than if you do it alone: quit smoking through the Devon Specialist Stop Smoking Service.

Three reasons to quit:

  1. Feel healthier: no matter how long you've smoked for, quitting can help improve your health straightaway
  2. Cash in: you'll have much more cash in your pocket. If you smoke a packet a day, you could save around £250 each month!
  3. Protect your family: quitting helps protect your loved ones from harmful second-hand smoke – reducing their risk of developing asthma, meningitis and some cancers.

For additional information, NHS Choices gives detailed advice on how to stop smoking, ranging from self-help tips, to how to stop smoking without putting on weight.
