Quitting smoking is one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions, but one that people struggle with given the addictive nature of nicotine.

The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit is one again encouraging Windorites to take part in the Driven to Quit Challenge. Anyone who registers online before February 28th will become eligible for 1 of 7 $1,000 regional cash prizes or a 2015 Toyota Corolla, Nissan Sentra, or Scion tC.

Getting started is easy:

  • Register by February 28, 2015.
  • Quit smoking by March 1, 2015 and remain tobacco-free for the month.
  • Remain tobacco-free for the month of March.
  • For an extra chance to win, register a buddy who will support you as you quit – it increases your chances of quitting successfully AND doubles your chances of winning!

Prizes will be drawn the first week of April 2015.
