Are you ready for Stoptober 2016
Published at 20 September, 2016.
As we head towards October it doesn’t just mark the start of autumn…it can also mark the start of a positive change in your life!
Our aim is to encourage as many smokers as possible in Yorkshire to join our ever-growing club of Quitters. So get ready to say hello to a healthier you by taking up the Stoptober challenge this year.
Did you know it can take a month to change a habit for good, and that’s why quitting smoking for 28 days means you’re 5 times more likely to stay smoke-free.
But that’s not all…
If you quit with the help of our stop smoking service you’re 4 times more likely to quit too! Take up the challenge with some support from us and the odds are stacked in your favour.
You can beat this, and this is how we can help…
