Most former smokers say the same thing: it's easier to quit smoking when you feel you've got support. That being the case, what better way to KO the smoking habit than as part of a team? Whether you're a non-smoker or a smoker who'd like to butt out for good, you can help someone in your circle free him- or herself from cigarettes.

Living smoke-free is one of the best decisions a person can make for his or her health, and among the people in your circle there must certainly be smokers who want to quit.
Support them by promoting the Quit to Win! Challenge in your organization.
Get moving to butt out
Physical activity contributes to a healthy life. But did you know that physical activity is also a powerful ally in quitting smoking? So get off the couch, turn off the TV, shut down the computer and go outside to get some fresh air for your lungs and your brain! By adding some action to your daily life, you will increase your chances of victory.
Be active at least 30 minutes a day, either continuously or in blocks of at least 10 minutes. That’s the goal to set yourself in order to feel the benefits of physical activity
Daily physical activity…
…helps deal with withdrawal symptoms
because it is a natural muscle relaxant that promotes sleep, helps digestion and reduces stress.
…allows you to get the better of strong cravings to smoke
by keeping your head and body busy.
…leads you to concentrate on positive and action-oriented thoughts and habits
such as “I’m taking a walk, going to the gym, playing hockey, etc.” rather than thinking about the lack of cigarettes by telling yourself “I can’t smoke any more”.
…improves your physical condition
and quitting smoking usually makes it easier to breathe and increases your endurance. And by exercising, you are even further ahead!
…helps maintain your weight
Exercising every day, eating well and paying attention to your hunger signals are the perfect combination to keep your figure.
since people who are physically active say that they are more confident in their ability to quit smoking and to maintain a smoke-free lifestyle.
…and on top of it all, it’s fun and gives you more energy!
