Quitting smoking can be hard and going it alone can be even harder. This October, we want to help you quit by giving you tools and tips to support you. Why not join OctoberQuest, the month when you find your own way to start your smoke free life?

What is #OctoberQuest?

#OctoberQuest is your month-long chance to find a way to stop smoking that works for you. You will get daily support and content through our You Can Quit Facebook page to help you on your quest to quit.

If I sign up to #OctoberQuest, does that mean I need to stop smoking on October 1?

No. You don't need to stop smoking on October 1. In fact, we recommend choosing Wednesday, October 9 as the day you quit so that you have some time to prepare, but that’s not a requirement either. Feel free to choose a quit date that suits you best. This month is about finding your own way to stop smoking.

How do I sign up?

Just follow us on Facebook and keep an eye out for our content. We will update this page once a day throughout October with tips and tricks to help you stay quit.

You can increase your chances of success by signing up for a Quit Plan as an extra helping of quit support for the month.

Start your OctoberQuest now.
