Tobacco Free Living

Quitting smoking is the single best thing you can do to improve your life and health.  You can quit smoking forever with planning, some new skills, motivation and support.  Even if you slip up, don’t stop trying to quit!

Ready to talk about quitting?

Leave The Pack Behind (LTPB) is a comprehensive, age-tailored, tobacco control initiative for young adults on post-secondary campuses.  It offers self-help programs and hosts an awesome website with two highly interactive cessation interventions called QUITRUNCHILL and e-SMOKE|QUIT.
