The 28 day challenge starts on the 1st October and Smokefreelife Berkshire are reaching out to the local people of Reading, West Berkshire, Wokingham and Bracknell to encourage them to give up the habit for good.
Stop smoking advisors are available to offer advice, support and arrange for free of charge medications for those signing up to quit.

Additionally, the Quit with Bella app is free to download for those living in Reading, West Berkshire, Wokingham and Bracknell, providing 24/7 AI powered support, when it is most needed.
Stoptober is the annual campaign from Public Health England (PHE) that encourages smokers across the country to join in and give quitting a go during October. Since launching in 2012, Stoptober has driven over 1.9 million quit attempts and is the biggest mass participation quit attempt in the country. Stoptober is based on research that smokers who make it to 28 days smokefree are five times more likely to quit for good. This year’s campaign, although without face to face promotions, will encourage smokers to re-evaluate their relationship with smoking and quit smoking to reduce their risk from Covid-19.
Remember quitting is all about finding what works for you!
