FREE counselling
FREE Cope Kits and Resources.

Enter the 'Quit for Good' category if you are ready to make 2011 your year!

Party Without the Pack

Enter this contest if you have a casual relationship with tobacco and smoke only occasionally. Some students only smoke in certain circumstances of life, or only use certain types of tobacco products (like cigars, hookah, or pipes). Many students are surprised that it is harder than they expected to go without tobacco and that they have actually started to move towards an addictive relationship. We hope this is not the case for you, and that you find you can easily "Party Without the Pack" and WIN CASH MONEY!


Regular smokers can also enter this category, if they are not ready to "QUIT FOR GOOD!" (see above). You can 'make a deal' with us, to reduce your tobacco use. Some ideas are: Commit to smoking only in the designated areas on campus, make your home and car smoke free, or to reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke per day by a set amount. All of these 'deals' are small steps, that can help move you to a healthier place with tobacco. Smoking even 1 less cigarette per day has health benefits!

Don't Start and WIN!

This contest is open to everyone on campus! If you don't smoke we think you deserve to be rewarded too! Please enter 'Don't Start and WIN!' Commit to simply not using any tobacco products for the next few months, and get a chance to win free CASH MONEY!
