  • Judging and Selection Criteria

    The judges of the Success Story of the Month are the support staff of The Stop Smoking Center. When evaluating nominations, The Stop Smoking Center support staff looks for stories from those who have made extraordinary changes in their lifestyle following a quit attempt. Changes may include but are not limited to changes in areas such as outlook on life, overcoming odds, dealing with frustrations or tempting situations, dealing with illness, coping with friends or family members who smoke, and supporting others.

    The judges also consider an overall increase in awareness of particular health problems, motivation, and an overall positive outlook on the quit smoking process.

    Monthly winners will be notified before they are announced. No product purchase required. The Stop Smoking Center reserves the right to change judging and selection criteria at any time.
