The Montréal West Island Integrated University Health and Social Services Centre encourages citizens who smoke and are ready to quit smoking to take the Quit to Win! Challenge, a Quebec-wide campaign that has been taking place each year for the past 19 years. The Challenge consists in refraining from smoking for six weeks. This year, the campaign will run from February 5 through March 18, 2018.
It has been demonstrated that to quit smoking for a determined period provides a huge advantage for quitting in the long term. By not smoking for six weeks, your chances of quitting for good will increase sixfold!
More than 450 000 participants have taken the challenge since its first edition in 2000, and statistics show that two out of three participants have successfully met the Challenge!
Many resources are made available to support participants and to answer their questions. To learn more about the Challenge, visit the Quit Smoking Centres page.
Smokers who want to take the challenge must register by February 5, 2018 at www.jarrete.qc.ca. Good luck to all participants!
