Contests, Challenges, Links

There is no one way to quit smoking successfully. If you've made a quit attempt and haven't been able to stay tobacco free, don't give up. Don't quit quitting. To help you stay on track or start you down the road to tobacco-free living, we are highlighting some of the contests, challenges, and interactive conversations you can get involved in to help you break up with tobacco.

Contests and Challenges

First Week Challenge - Contest
Running every month, the First Week Challenge Contest encourages Ontario adult tobacco users to quit smoking for one week for a chance to win $500. Entrants must sign up by the last day of the month and stay tobacco-free for the first week - the first 7 days - of the next month.

The Leave The Pack Behind annual wouldurather... contest is now open for registration. If you are between the ages of 18-29 and want to make healthy changes to your tobacco use behaviour either by: quitting, cutting back, partying without smoking, or committing to stay smoke free. When you register in one of these categories, you become eligible for a chance to win cash prizes of up to $5,000. Registration is open until January 22, 2017 for all Ontario young adults between the ages of 18-29.

Are you one of those people who supply tobacco to youth under 19 because you are being nice? Take a look at some videos that are funny but truly "bad ways to be nice" and hopefully you will stop and think about it next time before you help someone get their addiction on.
