Smoking Cessation - Quit Smoking

October is Smoking Cessation month for the NHS to promote everyone to look after their health and quit smoking.

As part of East Basildon PCN, Aryan Medical Centre supports smoking cessation month known through the NHS as Stoptober.

The initiative was first introduced in 2012 aiming to improve the health and wellbeing of the population.

There are massive benefits for people to quit smoking, and replacing this particular habit with more productive habits.

An individual’s health can show a number of positive effects, and discernible improvements can become evident almost immediately.

The Stoptober campaign

Stoptober is an annual campaign taking place in the United Kingdom every October to encourage smokers to quit smoking.

The 28 day campaign aims to raise awareness about the health hazards of smoking.

Furthermore, it provides support and resources to help smokers quit the addictive habit.

The Stoptober campaign offers a range of tools and resources to help smokers quit smoking, such as;

  • a free app
  • daily support emails
  • a dedicated website with information and advice

The campaign also encourages people to join the Stoptober community and share their progress and experiences with others.

The campaign’s slogan, “Together we can do this,” emphasizes the importance of social support in quitting smoking.

By joining the Stoptober community, smokers can receive encouragement and motivation from others who are going through the same journey.
