Stoptober logo

Stoptober, backed by Cancer Research UK (external link) and the British Heart Foundation (external link), is a 28-day quit attempt that runs each year from 1 October, aimed at encouraging the nation’s 8 million smokers to give up.

If you’re a Haringey resident, you can access personal support from One You Haringey (external link) on 020 8885 9095. The One You Stop Smoking Service team offers tailored 1-2-1 appointments as well as nicotine replacement therapy products (patches, gum and mouth spray).

Thousands of people will be quitting during Stoptober – if you’re a smoker thinking about quitting, this could be a great opportunity to make that change and improve your health and wealth.

To stay motivated through the full 28 days, why not also set up a JustGiving (external link) page to collect sponsorship to donate to a charity of your choice?
