The cravings and withdrawal symptoms after quitting smoking will be toughest during the first week, but once a smoker makes it through the first week smoke-free, they are 9 times more likely to quit for good.

That is why the Canadian Cancer Society is challenging you to quit smoking for the first 7 days of each month and offering a $500 cash prize to encourage you to try.

There are 12 First Weeks in a year, so there are 12 chances to win $500.

For more information and to register to be entered in the quit contest for the first week of next month click here.
