Stoptober is back - encouraging people to stop smoking for 28 days over October.
Quit 51 are proud to support the campaign and are committed to helping smokers become Smokefree through our 12-week quit programme.
Research shows that if you can stop smoking for 28 days you are five times more likely to stay smokefree for good, and you are four times more likely to quit smoking with free help and support from an stop smoking service practitioner.
So go ahead and take on the Stoptober challenge, call us today on 0800 622 6968 and start your quit attempt with the right tools to succeed.
People who quit smoking save on average £3,000 per year. Along with the huge financial benefits of stopping smoking, those undertaking the 28-day programme will experience physical improvements including a better sense of smell and taste and more energy.
What to expect from our service?
Research and 15 years of delivering stop smoking services in the UK has shown us that we can maximise your chances of quitting for good by giving you the best support possible.
- An adviser will provide initial help and they will negotiate which service, time/day and practitioner is best for you. Options include group or one-to-one support.
- We will offer you weekly appointments for the first few weeks (this is the hardest time for quitting); and then either continue with the weekly appointments, or perhaps consider moving to fortnightly appointments until you reach 3 months without even a puff on a cigarette or other form of tobacco.
- As well as talking to you each week, we will also call or text you in between appointments to help you to stay on track.
Stop Smoking Medication
We will also give you access to effective, licensed stop smoking medication, either
Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) or a prescription only medication – your practitioner will talk you through all of the choices and help you to come up with a plan.
During our time together we will focus on planning your quit attempt, supporting you through implementing the quit attempt, and then making sure you are able to stay quit for good.
