Are you driven to quit smoking?
The Canadian Cancer Society wants to help you be successful in their Driven to Quit Challenge. This challenge asks you to be smoke-free for the month of March for you chance to win a car or cash prize. Public health nurse with the Simcoe-Muskoka District Health Unit Joanne McFarland says smoking is the number one cause of preventable disease, disability and death in Ontario.
McFarland says research shows it could take someone up to 30 times to quit smoking. She says every try is important. She says giving up smoking is the single best thing someone can do for their health.
The deadline to register is on Feb. 28. McFarland says there are certain criteria to be eligible.
You also get an extra entry into the grand prize draw if you register with a friend. You also have a chance to win one of seven $1,000 cash prizes or eight $100 prizes for the friends of the winners. You can register by clicking here or by calling the Smokers Helpline at 1-877-513-5333.
