UNH Kicks Butts
UNH Kicks Butts
Kick Butts is on March 19, 2014 and is a national day of activism that began in 1996. Over 1,000 events in schools and communities across the United States and around the world are expected to participate in this year's campaign. Kick Butts' goal is to empower youth and young adults to stand out, speak up and seize control against Big Tobacco by:
- Raising awareness of the problem of tobacco use in state and local communities;
- Encouraging youth and young adults to reject the tobacco industry's deceptive marketing and stay tobacco-free;
- Urging elected officials to take action to protect communities from tobacco.

Free Quit Kits
Free Quit Kits are always available to the UNH community at our Pharmacy or by visiting a Smokeout Station. Each kit is filled with educational information and tools to help you cope with cravings.
You can also download materials from our Virtual Quit Kit.
Notice the Chalk
S.A.F.E. Peer Educators will be chalking the campus to illustrate that anyone smoking should stay at least 20 feet away from campus buildings. The chalking effort is a way to raise awareness about this campus policy and to share information about the health impact of tobacco use in our community.
UNH Smoking Cessation Services
You will be most successful in kicking your tobacco habit when you have support and utilize multiple measures rather than using only one. For example, some people use a nicotine replacement product along with meditation and counseling. The good news is, we offer many services to help you kick your tobacco habit to the curb...for good!
