Stoptober 2013 – orderline now open

July 26, 2013

What is Stoptober?

Stoptober is the 28-day national stop smoking challenge – and is set to return in October this year following its launch in 2012. Research has shown that people who manage to stop smoking for 28 days are five times more likely to stop for good and last year, thousands of people successfully quit in the biggest mass participation stop smoking challenge ever.

Supporting smokers all the way

As soon as smokers join Stoptober, they’ll start receiving as much (or as little) support as they want to keep them on track. All Stoptober support is free and includes:

  • Stoptober stop smoking pack
  • A 28-day smartphone app, with daily updates and quitting advice
  • Text service for motivational pick-me-ups
  • Detailed tools and tips for coping, as well as the encouragement and support from thousands of people going through the same thing via Social Media

 Why get involved?

Stoptober provides a great opportunity for a conversation starter with customers on quitting and gives pharmacy teams a fantastic and engaging way to discuss products, tailor advice and introduce stop smoking services.

It will be supported by a high profile advertising campaign, and community-level engagement across England with retailers, employers and local authorities all getting involved to make Stoptober bigger and better this year.

How you can get involved

Once again, promotional materials are being provided free of charge, such as the Stoptober stop smoking kit, posters and leaflets for pharmacies to support the campaign and encourage England’s smokers to join the challenge. The pharmacy order line on 0800 678 3173 is now open from Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm, until 28th October 2013 or whilst stocks last.
