#Stoptober – coming to a #Warwickshire town near you

In a bid to rally support for this year’s Stoptober, Warwickshire’s stop smoking team is taking to the streets armed with a giant red Stoptober button.

It is hoped the activity will help encourage thousands of local smokers to take part in the initiative which gets underway on October 1, helping them on the path to giving up smoking.

The 28-day stop smoking programme will include daily messages of motivation, persuasion and distraction. Last year more than 2,000 Warwickshire smokers took part.

The Stoptober inflatable roadshow is as follows:

24 September – Asda in Nuneaton

25 September – Asda in Leamington

30 September – Tesco in Bedworth

2 October – Kineton

It is proven that you are four times more likely to quit smoking for good if you go through our Warwickshire Stop Smoking service offering free support and advice.
