If quitting smoking is your New Year’s resolution, the Perth District Health Unit is promoting two ways to help you achieve your goal.
There’s the Leave the Pack Behind’s “wouldurather” contest and the Canadian Cancer Society’s Driven to Quit challenge.
wouldurather is open to anyone between the ages of 18 and 29.
It offers eight weeks of free quit smoking medication to all participants and two grand prizes of $2,500.
Anyone else who’s over the age of 19 is encouraged to sign up for Driven to Quit.
You’ll have a chance to win a new car.
Registration for the wouldurather contest is open until January 26. Visit www.wouldurather.ca for more information.
