This autumn NHS Bury is supporting the first ever mass quit smoking attempt launched by the Department of Health, called Stoptober.
Research shows that if you can stop smoking for 28 days you are five times more likely to stay smokefree and Stoptober leads smokers through a detailed step-by-step programme to help them achieve this goal.
Smoking is the biggest cause of premature death in England and each year it
accounts for over 100,000 deaths in the UK.
Stoptober 2012 kicks off on Monday 1 October and runs for 28 days. For more
