Every big journey begins with a single first step.
On August 1 we’re asking you to take the Tobacco Timeout Challenge and quit tobacco for 24hrs. Making the decision to try is the first step on the journey to becoming tobacco-free.
You don’t have to quit forever – just 24 hrs. And you don’t have to do this on your own – there will be hundreds of other people joining with you from across BC.
If you’re like most people who smoke, you probably want to quit and you’ve probably even tried before. The reality is that most people don’t quit the first time, nor the second, nor even the third.
Like learning anything new, learning to be smoke-free takes practice and takes time. The more times you try to quit – the more you break the cycle of routine – the more likely you are to succeed.
So what are you waiting for? You’ve got nothing to lose, a lifetime to gain, and – if you’re lucky – a $250 prize to win.
Let’s get started.
