How do I break out of a loop when I get to a certain item in a string?

I have been trying this for ages but I can't seem to find how to do it.

def loopy(items):
    for item in items:
        print (items)
        if item == "STOP":

You nearly got it. The challenge is asking you to break out the loop when item == 'STOP'. This means it doesn't want you to print the item when it does equal 'STOP'. To fix this simply place your if argument above your 'print(item)' line
