Stop Smoking This October

08 October 2018

Stoptober is an NHS campaign aimed at supporting people who want to quit and helps thousands of people annually.

Head of Foundation John Davis said: “We’re delighted to be working with SmokeFree Doncaster to support this important campaign. It’s widely reported that you’re more likely to quit with the right support and that’s what’s on offer with just the click of a button.

“There are many benefits to quitting smoking, such as feeling healthier, protecting your family and saving money. The simple fact is that no matter how long you've smoked for, quitting can help improve your health straight away.”

“In addition to the associated health benefits quitting helps protect your loved ones from harmful second-hand smoke – reducing their risk of developing asthma, meningitis and some cancers.”

Stoptober is a great opportunity for smokers to quit and the most successful way to quit, by far, is with support from your local NHS stop smoking service.

Yorkshire Smokefree Doncaster offers free expert support and free nicotine replacement products which means that smokers are five times more likely to quit compared to willpower alone.

Yorkshire Smokefree provides flexible support to suit you, either through face to face or telephone sessions or through an innovative online quit programme. To get the right support for you click on the link below or call 08006120011.
