Thank you to everyone who supported this campaign. We are no longer distributing campaign display packs on this topic, but you are very welcome to use the downloadable materials available on this webpage to continue supporting this health awareness topic.
Stoptober has driven over 1 million quit attempts to date and is the biggest mass quit attempt in the country. It is based on research that shows that if you can stop smoking for 28-days, you are five times more likely to stay smokefree for good. Click here for more information. There is also a free Smokefree app to help you stop smoking by providing daily support and motivation.
Alcohol Awareness Week (11-19 November)
This year’s campaign will include a series of short quizzes to improve our understanding and to motivate people to think about the ways in which they drink, and to consider if it’s time to make a change. People will be encouraged to start talking about alcohol, thereby breaking down the shame and stigma surrounding alcohol problems. For more information, click here. If you’d like to take part in Alcohol Awareness Week click here.
These two health topics are key elements of Public Health England’s One You program (click here).
