Contest Information

Why it works

You can double your chances of quitting successfully when you join the contest1-3 (really, it’s been proven)

Thinking of trying it? Here’s why you should!

Tried before? Try again!

We’ve seen it so many times – the more you try, the more likely you are to succeed4.

And if you don’t make it the full 6 weeks, that’s ok too. Contestants in wouldurather who don’t quit end up smoking less and that’s a step in the right direction1.
