Canada - National Non-Smoking Week January 18-24, 2009..


January 18, 2009 - National Non-Smoking Week (NNSW) has been observed for more than thirty years. From its inception in 1977, NNSW activities have been coordinated by the Canadian Council for Tobacco Control (CCTC). The CCTC this year is pleased to be partnering with The Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs and the Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council. National Non-Smoking Week is truly a Canada-wide endeavor, involving agencies and individuals working at the federal, provincial/territorial, regional and local levels.

Weedless Wednesday, January 21st has been a focal point of National Non-Smoking Week almost from the start, focusing media and public attention on the benefits of cessation and the community resources available to help smokers quit. The idea behind Weedless Wednesday is to promote a "one day at a time" approach to quitting smoking, a concept appealing to many smokers who may be discouraged at the thought of an entire week -- or lifetime -- without cigarettes, but who may be able to cope with one smoke-free day.
