Cumming, Georgia (PRWEB) May 16, 2012
QuitSmoking.com™ today announced the launch of The Quit Smoking Tips Challenge. The goal of this Facebook contest is to gather the most effective quit smoking tips from smokers who have successfully stopped smoking.
Contest judges are looking for tips that are effective, innovative, clever, funny, unexpected or inspiring. The winning tips will be shared on QuitSmoking.com and seen by the thousands of people who visit the site each day. Winners will also receive $75, $50 and $25 Amazon gift cards for first, second and third place respectively. Additional prizes are available for those who recruit the most contestants.
"We're constantly surprised at the innovative strategies our members use to quit smoking and deal with nicotine withdrawal," said T.J. Kapp, CEO of QuitSmoking.com. "Every time we go to the community, we find new and inspiring ideas to pass on to people who are still struggling to quit. Scientific research often lags well behind the collective wisdom of ex-smokers."
The contest begins May 15, 2012 and ends July 15 2012 at 2:00 PM Pacific Standard Time. Winners will be announced in August.
The Effects of Smoking
Smoking is the direct cause of nearly 1 in 5 deaths (5.4 million annually), in the United States. Today, more than 45.1 million Americans (21%) and 1.3 billion people (19%) worldwide smoke regularly. According to recent polls, 74% say they would like to give up smoking but only 3–5% of smokers are able to give up smoking without outside help.
Founded in 1997, QuitSmoking.com is the number one site worldwide for people who want to quit smoking. Through its flagship site, quitsmoking.com, and its network of more than 1,200 websites, the company provides quit smoking products, community support, and educational information to smokers who want to quit. It is estimated that since it was founded, the Quit Smoking community, information, and products have helped smokers save 425,300 years of life and an estimated $6–8 Billion in personal expenses.
