Annual 'Stoptober' drive aims to help thousands to quit smoking next month
SMOKERS in the region are being invited to join the thousands of people gearing up to join this year's 'Stoptober' - an annual drive to help people to quit on October 1.
This year, Stoptober is aiming to become the nation's biggest ever quitting drive - with every North-East local authority and dozens of organisations in the region taking part to back it.
Stoptober - which is launched today (Monday, September 9) - is a 28 day initiative from Public Health England, which is backed by the North-East tobacco control office, Fresh, which encourages the region's 460,000 smokers to make a quit attempt, starting on October 1.
People will be able to take advantage of free support including a Stoptober support pack, a daily messaging service and Stoptober mobile app. To register click on smokefree.nhs.uk/Stoptober/
