Stoptober

Public Health Bromley and its partners are supporting Stoptober to make sure that as many people as possible in Bromley know about the services and tools available to them to help kick the habit of smoking for good.

Though the dangers of smoking are well documented, we want to ensure that smokers in Bromley that want to quit know where they can find support, services and tools to help them achieve their goal of becoming smoke-free for good.

  • Stop Smoking London Helpline – 0300 123 1044 (7 days a week).
  • This helpline provides specialist and personally tailored advice and support for people who are trying to quit smoking, while also signposting to other information that can help keep their quit attempt on track.
  • Ask your local GP about support and advice for quitting smoking. Being able to dispel myths and misconceptions about quitting smoking can help smokers realise that they are capable of quitting for good, especially when making use of support and quit aids that are available.
  • Visit your local pharmacy and ask about Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) products that can be used to help quit smoking.
