What is WUR?
The wouldurather... contest is a quit smoking contest hosted by Leave The Pack Behind. This 6-week contest is designed specifically for young adults, and is open to any individual between the ages of 18 and 29 who is living in Ontario and/or all registered students at publically funded post-secondary institutions in Ontario, regardless of age.
In wouldurather... there are four categories to choose from, because we recognize that not everyone is ready to quit right now, and that's okay! So whether you smoke a little, a lot, or not at all, there is a category that is perfect for you.
- Quit For Good: Regular smokers pledge to quit smoking and remain smoke-free
- Keep The Count: Regular smokers pledge to reduce their smoking by 50%
- Party Without The Smoke: Regular or social smokers pledge to refrain from smoking when drinking alcohol
- Don't Start & Win: Non-smokers or ex-smokers pledge to continue to be smoke-free
All contestants must register with a "buddy" and will receive motivational emails from Leave The Pack Behind throughout the 6 week contest period. Contestants can also get the nicotine patch or gum for free as part of the contest. Click here for more info!
