The No Smoking Day campaign is organised by the No Smoking Day charity. In 2011 the No Smoking Day charity merged with the British Heart Foundation in order to secure the future of the campaign and to build on its long and successful history.
The No Smoking Day campaign helps smokers who want to quit by creating a supportive environment for them, and by highlighting the many sources of help and advice available.
The Day remains the UK's foremost public health event, bringing together professionals who share an interest in promoting health, generating significant media coverage, and providing an annual focus for the three in every four smokers who want to stop.
Every year over a million smokers will use No Smoking Day to try to quit.
The No Smoking Day charity also conducts year-round initiatives to encourage and support smokers who want to quit. These projects target specific communities, and aim to address health inequalities by coordinating networks of public health professionals from across the public, voluntary and private sectors.
In 2010 the charity launched 'We Quit', an all year round resource for smokers. The We Quit site aims to provide ongoing help and advice to smokers who want to quit.
All No Smoking Day projects are based on the principles of social marketing and are underpinned by our commitment to the highest standards of research and evaluation.
