NicCheck Used Again In Quebec's Quit and Win Challenge

The following is a letter received in recognition for our support of the Quit and Win Challenge in Quebec.

As we have done in past years, we are pleased to confirm that for the 2022 edition of the “Quit to Win Challenge!”, Capsana has once again used the “NICCHECK” strips to test our grand prize winners.

The 2022 “Quit to Win Challenge!” marks the 22nd edition of the yearly campaign to reduce smoking in the province of Quebec.  The smoking rate in Quebec now stands at 15% (2020 Statistics Canada) compared to 17% in 2019.  The campaign challenges participants to stop smoking for a 6-week period.  Registration is online and there are numerous tools offered to help participants reach their goal such as emails of encouragement, a Facebook page, and a dedicated website that provides information on the benefits of quitting, how to prepare, a countdown calendar, etc.  Studies have shown that quitting for 6 weeks provides a person 6 times the chances of quitting for good.  The 2022 campaign ran from February 7th to March 20th.  Our statistics have shown that 3 of 4 people who participate in the challenge succeed in stopping for the 6-week period.


We greatly appreciate the support you have provided the “Quit to Win Challenge!” over the many years and look forward to continuing this yearly cooperation.
