Current & Upcoming
About the Challenge
For the first week of next month, we’re challenging you to quit smoking or vaping for 7 days and offering you a $500 cash prize to encourage you to try.
Why is the first week so important? Because if you are successful for the first week, you’re 9x more likely to quit for good. And that’s amazing!
How to enter:
- Complete the First Week Challenge Contest registration form here
- Quit for (at least) the first 7 days of the next month
And don’t worry – we know that in order to succeed sometimes you have to quit and quit again. The good news is there are 12 First Weeks in a year, each with a chance to win $500.
We hope this challenge will be the little extra nudge you need to turn your urge to quit into action, and we can provide you with tools to support you.
Quitting smoking is the best thing you can do for your health.
Don’t let another First Week go by!

NICODERM®/NICORETTE® Combination Therapy Trial Pack Offer
Talk Tobacco is pleased to be able to offer a trial package of NICODERM® patches and NICORETTE® nicotine gum to qualifying quitters.
Research demonstrates it – people who smoke can greatly increase their chances of quitting or reducing by combining medication like these nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) products with personalized support like the services offered by Talk Tobacco.
We also know that it is by making quit attempts – trying and trying again – that gets people who smoke, or use vape products to their goal of staying nicotine-free for good.
We hope that this trial offer might be just the incentive people use commercial tobacco need to make a quit attempt and to learn more about NRT, and the great free services and tools that Talk Tobacco has to offer.
If you meet the eligibility and legal requirements, we will arrange to have you shipped 2 NICODERM® Step 1 patches (21mg),1 sleeve of 15 NICORETTE® Fresh Fruit Gums (4mg), and a discount coupon for $10 off the purchase of any two participating NICODERM® or NICORETTE® products.
