Stoptober 2017

Skint? Smoking Costs banner

In 2017 the Department of Health and Social Care, Quit4You Team will focus on supporting local community groups to quit smoking over the 28 days of the UK STOPTOBER promotion. 

We have previously supported the UK 28-day stop smoking challenge from Public Health England that encourages and supports smokers to becoming smoke free.

Stoptober is based on the insight that if you can stop smoking for 28-days, you are five times more likely to quit for good.

Smokers are invited to attend a ‘1 hour FREE Taster Group Session’ and we are encouraging you to ‘Grab a smoking buddy’ and come along to sign up.

Planned Taster Sessions:

DayDateTimeVenue
Monday 11 September 9am Markwell House, Douglas
1pm Children’s Centre, Woodbourne Road, Douglas
Tuesday 12 September 2pm Loch Promenade Church, Douglas
Wednesday 13 September 12:30pm Isle of Man College, Douglas
6pm Ramsey Cottage Hospital, Ramsey
Thursday 14 September 2pm The Marine Hotel, Peel
Friday 15 September 1.30pm The Sidings, Castletown
