Is it your time to quit smoking?

If it is, then Stoptober could be the perfect opportunity to get all the help and advice you need to make quitting easier...

The 28-day stop smoking challenge from Public Health England, runs from Tuesday 1 October and offers a range of free quitting support including a Stoptober app, Facebook messenger bot, daily emails and Stoptober online communities.

Visit the Stoptober website to find out more:

As part of the month's activities, there will be a Stoptober team in Sainsbury's Oldham on Thursday 3 October from 10am – 4pm, providing support and advice.

Or how about contacting Positive Steps who can offer FREE, individual, one-to-one support to anyone in the town wanting to quit:

People who quit with the support of a stop smoking service are four times more likely to stop for good - so if you've been on the fence, now's the time!
