The Quit to Win! Challenge is a province-wide campaign that takes place each year. For the past 18 years, it helps smokers who are ready to quit smoking to take action.
The commitment: to not smoke for 6 weeks, from February 6 to March 19, 2017.
Participate in the Challenge in your own way: alone, with the help of a non-smoking sponsor or by teaming up with another smoker who also wants to quit.
You will also qualify to win one of the prizes!
Because the act of completely quitting smoking for an established period of time is a key factor for long-term tobacco cessation. Succeeding with the Challenge provides a solid foundation for the smoking cessation process.
After 18 years, the Quit to Win! Challenge remains relevant in Quebec where 20.5% of the population still smokes.* This represents close to 1.5 million smokers, 60% of whom want to quit.
Over 415,000 people have participated in the Challenge since 2000. Survey results show that on average, two out of three Quit to Win! Challenge participants successfully meet the challenge of not smoking for six weeks—an extremely encouraging result!
