Take the Tobacco I.Q. Challenge

November 6, 2018  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

True or false?  E-cigarettes contain nicotine.

Take the Tobacco I.Q. Online Challenge and find the answer to this and other tobacco-related myths and misconceptions. It only takes a few minutes to complete the 10-question quiz and test your knowledge about smoking, quitting, e-cigarettes and more. You might be surprised at what you learn!

U-M faculty and staff who take the challenge by Nov. 15 can enter a drawing for a chance to win one of five $10 Amazon gift cards.

The tobacco challenge was created in support of the Great American Smokeout, which takes place every third Thursday of November. This year, on Nov. 15, the MHealthy Tobacco Consultation Service (TCS), along with the American Cancer Society and many other health organizations, will encourage smokers to use this day to make a plan to quit smoking.

Other resources available to raise awareness and help those who want to quit tobacco include:

Wall at Towsley Center

If you are visiting the Towsley Center in November, stop by to view the Towsley wall where TCS has installed a timeline of the history of tobacco. The wall also includes information and resources that can help anyone who wants to live tobacco-free.

Quit Kit

A “virtual” quit kit is available on the TCS website and includes helpful tools to help you ‘Quit for A Day.’

Seminars

TCS experts are available to attend staff meetings for 5-10 minute presentations to talk about the resources available through the program. For more information, call MHealthy Tobacco Consultation Service at 734-998-6222.

TCS counseling

TCS offers free, one-on-one individual counseling focused on the body, mind and social reasons for using tobacco. The service provides the support and skills you need to help you quit, and stay quit. For more information, call MHealthy Tobacco Consultation Service at 734-998-6222.
