About the event
The 'KICK your HABIT' campaign aims to raise awareness about the complexities of substance use disorders. The campaign seeks to spread awareness through experience, challenging people in our communities and across the country to give up one "thing" for a week and experience, albeit briefly, what a substance dependent might go through in treatment. Experience leads to education, which is the campaign's ultimate goal. It is entirely up to the individual's discretion whether this 'thing' is caffeine, tobacco, chocolate, or even shopping; however, it is important to think about your choice and select a habit that you can identify using on a regular basis.
It is recommended that you keep a daily log or even an online blog of your progress, as this will increase awareness of the difficulties that dependents face on a daily basis. It's up to you whether this daily log is public or private, as long as you engage in the challenge. Follow us on our Kick-Your-Habit Facebook page for tips and encouragements.
