Challenge- Quit Smoking

If you are a smoker, give yourself the gift of health

Here comes the "Quit to win" challenge

Dear nathalie, I am forwarding you the information for the "Quit to win" challenge in order to help you free yourself once and for all of tobacco. Although the contest is only offered to people living in Quebec, the information and the support can be used by anybody.

What is the Challenge ? The Quit to Win! Challenge was created out of the desire to encourage the values of mutual support and respect between smokers and non-smokers by using the "buddy system". The Quit to Win! Challenge is an extraordinary opportunity for all smokers to free themselves of tobacco while getting a chance to win great prizes! The people who register pledge not to smoke between March 1 and April 11, 2006, inclusively, with the help of a partner of their choice. Prizes are awarded through a random draw from among the names of participants and their partners. The results of many surveys show that close to 70% of participants met the challenge not to smoke during the six-week period, and that 24% to 29% were still non-smokers after a year. This is one of the highest success rates among all such campaigns throughout the world! In 1999, the ACTI-MENU team - the initiators of the project - had the idea of helping the greatest number of people possible to free themselves of tobacco by encouraging smokers and non-smokers to participate in a huge, dynamic and positive campaign based on mutual support. They then set up the Quit to Win! Challenge, in co- operation with the ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux du Québec (the provincial department of health and social services), all the directions de santé publique des agences de développement de réseaux locaux de services de santé et de services sociaux, the Conseil québécois sur le tabac et la santé, the Canadian Cancer Society, Health Canada and several corporations. This home-grown initiative was inspired by the World Health Organization's Quit & Win campaign, which originated in Finland and has been held since 1994 in numerous countries around the world. The WHO underscored the importance of ACTI-MENU's contribution when it awarded its top prize in the 2002 international campaign to the grand winner from Québec.
