Stoptober 2022

Stoptober is back, calling on smokers in England to join the 2.5 million others who have made a quit attempt with the campaign since it launched a decade ago in 2012. Nearly 6 million adults in England still smoke, and it remains the single biggest behavioural cause of preventable death, with 64,000 deaths a year.

If you are a smoker, quitting is one of the best things you can do for your health, allowing you to start moving better, breathe more easily – and giving you more money to spend. Join the thousands of others and start your quitting journey this October.

If you are a Derbyshire resident, Live Life Better Derbyshire offers a free, 12-week stop-smoking service that includes telephone and digital support, advice and access to stop smoking prescription medications.

If you are a Derby resident, Live Well Derby offer personalised support to stop smoking.
