Leave The Pack Behind at the University of Toronto’s St. George Campus

Leave The Pack Behind is a peer driven programme that provides information to students on tobacco use and its effects and helps support those who are interested in quitting or cutting back. Our open minded, causal approach provides an opportunity for discussing tobacco related issues in a non judgmental environment. Come to talk to us about the relationship between tobacco and physical activity, healthy eating, stress, sexuality, the environment, marijuana, shisha, and so much more! Don’t forget our display tables and walkabouts on campus where we distribute info resources and cool freebies.

Check out our informative monthly themes, get involved in our special events or line up for a free Carbon Monoxide test! We welcome all smokers, ex-smokers, non-smokers, and friends of smokers!

    Better than cigarettes? Comparing Tobacco, Marijuana, and Shisha.
    Quick Fact: Hookahs are used to smoke shisha and shisha = tobacco. Using a hookah to smoke shisha can be addictive!

    Truth: Just like regular tobacco, shisha contains nicotine, making it addictive. In fact, in a 60 minute session, shisha-smokers are exposed to 100-200x the volume of smoke inhaled from a single cigarette and 3x the amount of nicotine!
    Quick Fact: College students who use marijuana regularly often have impaired skills related to attention, memory and learning.

    Truth: People can become dependent on marijuana. Becoming dependent on marijuana is more likely to occur for people who used marijuana weekly as teens, men (vs. women), and smokers (vs. non-smokers).
