Smokers encouraged to swap fags for gags

Stoptober 2014 has enrolled the country’s top comedians to help smokers get through this year’s 28-day quitting challenge and help them quit for good this October.

Comedians including Paddy McGuinness, Al Murray, Simon Brodkin (aka Lee Nelson, Jason Bent and Dr Bob) and Andi Osho will this year bring a touch of the British sense of humour to help quitters through this difficult and daunting challenge – and you can watch the sketch show below.

Stoptober provides smokers with a range of free tools including a new stop smoking pack, a 28-day mobile phone app, text support with daily updates, quitting advice and tips for coping.

A nation-wide roadshow running from 8th September to 11th October will also see comedic entertainers go into communities across the country to drive more people to get involved in the campaign and share their own humorous experiences of quitting smoking or supporting others. 

The 28-day challenge starts on Tuesday, 1st October. For more information and to join the biggest stop smoking challenge of its kind, visit the Stoptober website and sign up.
