Forget the mistletoe, the holly and the
Auld Lang Syne, Smokers’ Helpline is encouraging smokers to start their New

It could net you $500
With the First Week Challenge
Contest, quitting for just a week (or longer) could win you one of two $500
prizes. How’s that for motivation? Visit FirstWeekChallengeContest.ca and
pledge to quit for the first week of November to enter…and if you don’t stay
quit, try again in December.
Have MORE New Years’
What’s better than an extra New

can quit again! The more you quit, the better you get at it. It’s a learning thing
– even a day-long quit is enough to get you started. Give us a call and we can
help you get off on the right foot: 1-877-513-5333 (or, if you’re in Ontario,
call Telehealth at 1-866-797-0000).

Christmas bills, mid-winter
blahs, no more eggnog – do you really want to add quitting to that equation?
Right now the stress of
the holidays is months away. Why not make like the leaves and change? Only
without the falling out of a tree part. Picking a regular, routine day to quit
can increase your chances of success, so use the boring old Fall season to your
