About the Competition
'Quit & Win - Don't Start & Win' is a European smoking prevention and cessation project, which is conducted under the framework of the European Network on Young People and Tobacco (ENYPAT). Bookofra Trick

What Is It All About? The Aims -

The aim of the project is to help young smokers to quit smoking and non-smokers to stay non-smokers. We hope the project will be influential in getting young people to talk about smoking as well as putting it on the agenda of parents, adults and health professionals.

Young people (14-25)yrs (different age groups in each european country) are asked to enter the competition by completing the application card. The materials are disseminated through schools, youth clubs, health centres and places where young people of this age group spend their time in each country.


Each participating European country will organise the competition in its area. Smokers are able to participate in the competition if they are willing to quit smoking for a specified period of time. Non-smokers are able to participate in the competition by deciding not to start smoking for the same period. After a 1-3 month period there is a draw to pick a winner of those who succeeded either to quit smoking ( draw A) or to stay non-smokers (draw B). All national prizewinners in each country will also enter a final draw to produce an overall European winner.


The materials, which are available for participants, are competition cards, leaflets, postcards, internet pages, quit guides and magazines. All material will give information on the rules of the competition, encourage quitting/staying non-smokers and gives some information on smoking and tips especially for quitting.


Information is obtained from participants who have entered the competition.
