NEED A SOURCE? Butt out for National Non-Smoking Week

You only need one reason to quit, Smokers' Helpline offers three ways to help

TORONTO, Jan. 17 /CNW/ - Many Ontarians will attempt to quit smoking during National Non-Smoking Week, this January 17-23. Some may have already begun their attempt to quit as part of a New Year's Resolution, and many may have already fallen off the wagon. 

Quitting is a process, not an event, and it is a different experience for everyone.

There are hundreds of reasons to quit smoking, but you only need one to get started. Fortunately, the Canadian Cancer Society has three ways to help you butt out and stay smoke-free, through the Smokers' Helpline, Smokers' Helpline Online and with instant text message support.

The Canadian Cancer Society Smokers' Helpline encourages Ontarians to set themselves up for success by making a quit plan and getting support throughout the quitting process.

A Quit Specialist from the Canadian Cancer Society can speak about:

  • Creating a personalized quit plan

  • Quit methods and aids

  • New stats on tobacco use in Ontario

  • Staying smoke-free

  • Support services from the Canadian Cancer Society Smokers' Helpline, including phone counselling, an online program and text messaging

  • The Driven to Quit Challenge, launched in January 2011, which provides extra motivation for Ontarians to make a quit attempt for their chance to win incredible prizes, including a Hybrid vehicle!
