As part of National Non-Smoking Week, the government announced a new initiative to help smokers quit. Tobacco Free Tuesdays will take place the first Tuesday of every month, starting Feb. 5 and running through to April 2. Aspiring quitters will be challenged to quit smoking for 24 hours for a chance to win one of five prizes awarded monthly. Recent ex-smokers can also participate to help them stay on track.
