The Quit Kit and other tools

To increase your chances of success, don’t hesitate to use the helpful resources at your disposal. Choose from the following selection of free support tools. Quitting smoking is far from easy, but with a little help and a good dose of motivation, you can do it!

The Jean Coutu Quit Kit

The Jean Coutu Quit Kit is free of charge and offered exclusively to Challenge participants in Jean Coutu stores. It can be picked up in any Jean Coutu pharmacy starting January 5, 2018 upon presentation of your registration confirmation. Participants can take this opportunity to talk with the pharmacist and get advice.

It contains advice on how to quit, information on medical aids to help you stop smoking as well as a follow-up calendar. As a bonus, you will also receive a water container to help keep you hydrated and get through the smoking cravings. Quit Kits are available in limited quantities. 

What's more, all those who take possession of the kit will be eligible to win one of the five (5) Jean Coutu $100 gift cards. These cards are redeemable in all Jean Coutu pharmacies.

The SOS Challenge app

The mobile application is a free tool that will help you stay the course. The app is based on the use of your support network. It will be the ideal companion to keep your cravings down and maintain your motivation!


Print your calendar and follow your progress day by day during the 6 weeks of the Challenge, from February 5 to March 18, 2018. A practical and engaging tool!

The encouragement emails

When you register for the Quit to Win! Challenge, you can sign up for our free I'm Butting Out! emails. The email messages provide encouragement and practical suggestions to help you get ready to butt out, fight cravings, and stay motivated.

The emails start two weeks before your quit date. You will receive one message every week for the first four months, and then one per month until you've gone one year without smoking.

A great source of motivation for many participants!
