Quit & Win is now over. More than 250 people and their tobacco-free friends registered for the program. Four winners—one tobacco-free friend and three now former tobacco users—have been selected and notified.
Our appreciation goes out to all who took part in Quit & Win. Together, we can make breathing easier on campus.
Ready to break your habit? You can—with a little help from your friends.
Stay tobacco-free during the month of November and you're eligible for one of three grand prizes—up to $1,000 in Amazon gift cards! Tobacco-free friends are also eligible to win an Amazon gift card.
Quit & Win is a unique and exciting opportunity for students, staff and faculty at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities campus who are current tobacco users to become tobacco-free!
Participants agree to stop using tobacco for one month (Nov. 1–30, 2014). Those who remain tobacco-free the entire month will be entered into a prize drawing for Amazon gift cards. All Quit & Win participants receive a free two-week supply of nicotine replacement patches and gum.
The University of Minnesota offers FREE tobacco cessation counseling with a licensed chemical dependency counselor. The nicotine dependency counselor will help you develop an individualized plan to quit tobacco that includes education, support and follow-up. Over-the-counter nicotine replacement medication is available at no out-of-pocket cost to full-time students who pay the Student Services Fee. A Boynton Health Service medical provider can offer prescription medication and some counseling. For information on Boynton's tobacco cessation counseling, call 612-625-8400; for appointments, call 612-625-3222.
Quit & Win is open to all University of Minnesota-Twin Cities campus students (part-time or full-time), staff and faculty (with an appointment of .75 FTE or greater) who have used tobacco 10 or more days per month for the past year. Participants must register a tobacco-free friend as their partner. See our eligibility page for more information. The deadline to enroll is 4 p.m. on Oct. 31, 2014.
