Butt out today!

Published Wednesday January 20, 2010

The Government of Canada announced today funding for a project to deliver tobacco prevention and cessation knowledge through public health networks.

The announcement comes on Weedless Wednesday, a focused smoke-free day during National Non-Smoking Week.

Weedless Wednesday

The focus of Weedless Wednesday is to go one smoke-free day. This promotes a "one day at a time" approach to quitting smoking - a concept appealing to many smokers who may be discouraged at the thought of an entire week without cigarettes.

You CAN quit
