of Smokefree Women?

Smokefree Women,

developed by the National Cancer

Institute, is your ultimate

guide of staying clear

of tobacco & boosting your

quit attempt.

Think of us as a virtual B.F.F.

for tips, advice,

and support

to keep women smokefree.

year anniversary

Shani: And we're so excited!

Videos must be submitted

and winners will be announced

July 2nd just in time

for Independence Day.

Let's celebrate freedom

from cigarettes and smoking.

And so, let me tell you the

contest themes.

There are two categories

that you can enter.

In the first category,

we want to hear why you are a

smokefree woman.

What are your reasons

and motivations?

What does it mean to you

to be smokefree?

Jeff: Not a woman?

Not a problem.

We all have someone special

in our lives

who should be smokefree.

The second category is for you.

Tell your mother;

tell your sister;

tell your cousins; a coworker

or a neighbor.

Tell them why you want them

to be smokefree.

Ami: Besides getting a chance

share your story

or encouraging a woman

in our life to stay smokefree,

there's prizes!

The National Cancer Institute's

Smokefree Women website will

feature the winning video

in each category
