In its annual anti-smoking challenge, the Canadian Cancer Society is once again offering all smokers the chance to successfully kick the habit and win a grand prize in the process – a 2015 Toyota Corolla, Nissan Sentra, or Scion tC.
Tagged Driven to Quit, the anti-smoking society understands the fact that many smokers are hooked to the habit and face a serious battle overcoming the demon; but they are resolved in their drive to help all smokers overcome the problem without any hassles…and even consider winning a car prize as a motivation for succeeding.
To win a prize in the Driven to Quit anti-smoking competition, entrants within Ontario are encouraged to quit tobacco and cigarettes for the entire month of March, and they must also prove that they have remained free of tobacco for the whole month.
To be a potential winner, entrants must have registered by February 28 after which they will be entered for the prize draw to take place the first week of April. To quit smoking and qualify for the competition, entrants are required to fulfill some basic conditions:
- List out or outline the reasons why you must quit smoking today
- Set a date at which to actively quit smoking
- Plan out how to deal with withdrawal symptoms
- Set forth how to handle trigger situations and urges to wrap a smoke
- Set out to delimit tobacco use before the set date for quitting
Set up since 2006 to encourage active smokers to quit smoking through some internal powers, the Driven to Quit challenge has assisted some 213,000 Ontarians to kick smoking in the face. According to John Atkinson, the director of tobacco control and cancer prevention at the Canadian Cancer Society, Ontario division, “Some need the support we provide through our Smokers’ Helpline and some benefit from the extra incentive of a prize to take that important step forward.”
And to this end, participants aiming at quitting smoking are encouraged to access a Smokers’ Helpline – a free and confidential service that provides personalized support, advice, and information about quitting smoking and tobacco use.
