The Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU) offers a number of free programs and services to help make quitting tobacco easier:

  • Online Videos: This series of 11 videos will take you from preparing to quit, through the first 10 days as a non-smoker.

  • MyQuit.ca: A program that offers smokers who wish to quit or reduce their tobacco use a tailored approach based on their individual needs. 

    Why Quit?

    Smoking causes cancer, heart disease, and pulmonary disease while also putting you at extra risk for colds and the flu, ulcers, osteoporosis and many other illnesses.  Your smoking doesn’t just affect you.  Everyone around you breathes your second-hand smoke, which puts them at risk for cancer and other diseases.
    Quitting smoking isn't easy but it's worth the effort.  You'll feel healthier once you quit and so will everyone around you.  If you want to quit, we can help!

    For more information about tobacco or any of our quit smoking services and supports, call the Eastern Ontario Health Unit at 613-933-1375 or at 1 800 267-7120 and ask for Health Line.
