Stoptober is back to help more smokers split up from their relationship with smoking

This Stoptober, smokers are being encouraged to end a bad relationship and split up with smoking for 28 days from Tuesday 1 October.

The latest data from the UCL Smoking Toolkit Study suggest a 2.2% drop in adult smoking prevalence so far in 2019. Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust is encouraging North Devon’s remaining smokers to join in with the nation’s biggest quit attempt.

If you are a smoker, quitting is the best thing you can do for your health and the health of those around you. Whether you’ve tried to quit before, or this is the first time, Stoptober is encouraging you to become part of the movement and join thousands of people who are splitting up with smoking this October. If you make it to 28 days, you’re five times more likely to stay smokefree.

Just search ‘Stoptober’ online to find a range of free quitting support including the Stoptober app, Facebook messenger bot, daily emails and Stoptober online communities.

Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust is a smoke and vape free Trust, which means no one should be smoking or vaping in any buildings or on the grounds anywhere.

Please help us maintain a smoke and vape free site for everyone by not bringing in smoking and vaping items when you visit the hospital. If you do wish to smoke or vape please leave the site to do so and dispose of your cigarette butts in the bins provided.
